OCSAPN Sponsorships are available for members who wish to conduct a prevention-related event or project.
- Projects must be related to the prevention of at-risk behavior in adolescents and their families
- Priority will be given to applicants who are not recipients of state or federal funds or grants over the amount of $15,000
- Priority will be given to organizations that utilize more volunteer hours than paid hours for staffing
- No projects will be awarded more than $250.00 or be consider for funding more than once a year
