Twenty-two grants totaling $1.5 million will help strengthen school-based alcohol and drug prevention programs in Ohio.
Building Youth Resiliency is a partnership between the Office of the First Lady Karen Kasich , the Governor's Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and several state agencies. It is supported by federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families dollars.
Programs were selected from a pool of 38 proposals. To be eligible, applicants were required to partner with schools where more than 40 percent of the student population qualifies for the free- and reduced- lunch program.
