Immaculata One of Many Recipients of Grants Aimed at Preventing Reckless Drinking


Immaculata University has received a grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to help in its efforts to reduce underage and reckless alcohol consumption.

The PLCB’s 2017-19 Alcohol Education Grant Program has distributed a record $2.3 million to 66 organizations in 33 counties across the state. Recipients include schools, community organizations, law enforcement, and nonprofits.

More than 40 of said grants will go toward funding law enforcement in communities. The maximum grant size is $40,000.

Immaculata has been awarded $27,284 to run a Core Alcohol and Drug Survey and to help fund its AlcoholEDU and CHOICES programs. Also, the school is planning to implement a special resident assistant training program to address the issue.

“This year, we’re awarding a record amount of funding to the most grant recipients we’ve ever approved through this grant program,” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden. “Preventing underage and irresponsible drinking is an important part of our mission, one we take very seriously.”
