Counties could use the grant money for campaigns to utilize radio, newspaper or other promotional advertising. If your county is interested, please submit the application to the training and Development Team, Richard, Jayde or Kacie, no later than August 1, 2018.

Requests will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Grant funds available.
  • Amount requested.
  • Type of advertising proposed.
  • Duration and proposed dates for promotion.
