Student AODA Mini-Grant Program


Comprehensive school health programs require youth involvement to create environments conducive to healthy, resilient, and successful learners. As part of the Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) efforts to encourage youth initiatives, we are offering the Student Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) Mini-Grant Program for the 35th year, in the 2023-2024 school year. Funds will be available on a competitive basis for schools throughout the state to support education, prevention, and intervention programs designed by students, targeting AODA and other youth risk behaviors to include commercial tobacco use, violence, bullying, suicide, and alcohol traffic safety (ATS). A primary funding priority of the mini-grant program is the involvement of youth in the planning and implementation of the project. Therefore, youth involvement in the planning and implementation of the Student AODA Mini-Grant Program is required. Consideration will also be given based on the educational value of the project and statewide geographic distribution of funds. The amount of each individual mini-grant award may not exceed $1,000.
