The Municipal Alliance is a network of community-based prevention programs found throughout New Jersey’s 21 Counties It was created for grassroots volunteers to have the opportunity to develop programs and implement activities to address specific substance abuse problems in their communities. Throughout the state, Drug Enforcement Demand Reduction (DEDR) funds are collected by fines imposed for DUI offenses. The Governor’s Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse (GCADA) utilizes these funds to issue grants to each county in New Jersey.
The County Alliance Coordinator oversees and provides support & technical assistance to the Salem County Municipal Alliances, with the oversight of the County Alliance Steering Subcommittee (CASS), which meets quarterly. Every alliance plans and implements substance abuse prevention programs for their community using DEDR funds and matched funds as well as monies raised through local fundraising efforts or municipality support.
The following dates are the upcoming CASS Meetings which will meet via TEAMS video call. Please contact the County Coordinator for more information and if you would like to attend.
