There isn’t much time left to apply for grants of up to $20,000 to discourage and reduce underage and dangerous drinking.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board on Thursday sent out a reminder that applications for the grants are due by noon March 15.

The PLCB awarded about $1 million in alcohol education grants during the last grant cycle, a PLCB statement said. Some initiatives funded in previous years include increased police patrols targeting underage drinking, enhanced law enforcement initiatives and peer education and training programs.

School districts and institutions of higher education including technical, trade, and post-secondary establishments, community organizations, municipal police departments, municipal officials and or representatives, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations are eligible to apply.

Applications are limited to one per organization. They will be received and evaluated by the PLCB’s Bureau of Alcohol Education.

The grant cycle is from July 2019 through June 2020.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
