Substance abuse prevention for underserved communities
MN Department of Human Services – Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (MN DHS-ADAD) wants to help underserved communities address drug and alcohol abuse. Language, culture, and resources are just three reasons why many people do not receive the support and services they need.

To help address that, Minnesota Department of Human Services Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division has funds available to offer training and technical assistance on substance abuse prevention to representatives from communities not typically served in a culturally responsive and competent way. If you would like to partner with us and understand how substance abuse prevention can work in your community, apply by January 9, 2015.

The application and a frequently asked questions page is now available. Questions or help with the application? Contact Farhia Budul at or call 651-431-6326.

The first link will take you to the DHS website. The second link is a PDF version of the application.
