Project SIGnificant money to provide funds
The community of Alta has been selected as the pilot program for a new Buena Vista County Public Health substance abuse prevention program, a designation that will provide more than $40,000 to begin family, school and community programs this year.
BVCPH is one of 28 Iowa entities receiving a total of $7 million from Project SIGnificant, a state incentive grant program looking to encourage Iowa counties and communities to implement model programs with proven effectiveness to combat the abuse of alcohol, marijuana and tobacco by youth. The money is also aimed at strengthening local coalitions that take into account the different needs of the communities.
