ABC Education & Prevention grant program

Virginia ABC seeks to partner, collaborate and build capacity with those who share in promoting our message of alcohol safety and responsibility. Through the Education and Prevention section, Virginia ABC offers annual Alcohol Education and Prevention Grants of up to $10,000.

Alcohol Education and Prevention Grants provide funding to organizations working to prevent underage and high-risk drinking within their communities. Organizations eligible to apply include, but are not limited to, community coalitions, law enforcement, nonprofits, schools, colleges and universities, faith-based organizations and prevention-related groups.

Grant applicants must address one or more of the following priorities:

  • underage drinking prevention
  • social providing/social hosting prevention
  • high-risk drinking prevention
Grantees are encouraged to build partnerships and embrace collaboration to achieve a meaningful, measurable and long-lasting impact. Members of the Education and Prevention team stay in contact throughout the grant cycle to provide support and encourage success.
