Substance Abuse Grant

University Park, Pa.-based Penn State University and Ames, Iowa-based Iowa State University have received an $11.6 million grant from the Bethesda, Md.-based National Institute on Drug Abuse, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant will contribute to the continued operation of the PRO-moting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience project, also called PROSPER, which is a partnership between the two universities to promote positive youth behaviors and alternatives to substance abuse. The grant will be used over the next five years to help more than 12,000 youths in Iowa and Pennsylvania.
