Building Long-Term Support for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Programs

By William DeJong and Laurie Davidson

Section 1, "Building a Program for Long-Term Survival" explains why early planning should focus on collaboration within the college community, strong commitment from top school administrators, an established long-range plan, objectives tied to the collegeís mission, networking outside the college community, a system of program accountability, and the strategic use of public relations. Section 2, "Identifying Alternative Sources of Funding" discusses several components of successful grant-writing: developing a clear program concept, thinking like a marketer, working in partnership with the college development office, state and federal sources of prevention funding, and locating sources of information and assistance. Web sites for resources described in the publication can be accessed through links on the Centerís site.
