Mercer Council Receives Grant For Substance Abuse Prevention

Sexual Violence and Substance Use Disorders, 4/22/2021

The Mercer Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction received a $125,000 federal grant to support the Prevention Coalition of Mercer County.

The Office of National Drug Control Policy awarded the organization the Drug Free Communities grant. The DFC program provides grants of up to $625,000 over 5 years to community coalitions that facilitate citizen participation in local drug prevention efforts.

Mercer Council formed the Prevention Coalition in 2012. It has more than 25 active members from all sectors of the community, including law enforcement, government, schools, parents, religious groups, treatment, prevention and business.

The DFC grant funding will allow the Prevention Coalition of Mercer County to support existing environmental strategies and efforts to keep youth drug-free.

The DFC Program was created by the Drug-Free Communities Act of 1997, and reauthorized by Congress in 2001 and 2006. Since 1998, the Office of National Drug Control Policy has awarded more than 2,000 Drug-Free Communities grants to local communities nationally.

Tax Filings And Audits By Year

The IRS Form 990 is an annual information return that most organizations claiming federal tax-exempt status must file yearly. Read the IRS instructions for 990 forms.

If this organization has filed an amended return, it may not be reflected in the data below. Duplicated download links may be due to resubmissions or amendments to an organization’s original return.

Nonprofit organizations that spend $750,000 or more in Federal grant money in a fiscal year are required to submit an audit covering their finances and compliance. Some of these are program specific, while others, called single audits, look at the entire organization. Nonprofit Explorer has PDFs of these audits for some nonprofits for fiscal year 2015 and later. Theyre provided by the Federal Audit Clearinghouse.
