Pittsfield Prevention Partnership Receives Another Five-year Grant

Pittsfield Prevention Partnership (PPP) has been awarded another five-year grant from the federal Drug Free Communities program.

The grant totals $625,000 and will be paid out in $125,000 increments annually over the next five years.This is the second five-year award that PPP has received.  The grant process was competitive and only 60 coalitions out of the 364 that applied were selected.  This is terrific news for Pittsfield youth and a great testament of the work of the Pittsfield community to create an environment that encourages our youth to make positive choices and reduce risky behaviors.
