Law Enforcement Assistance Fund (LEAF) Prevention
  • Applications due April 21, 2014
  • Administered by the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health, Community Prevention and Early Intervention Programs
  • The purpose of program grants is to increase the capacity for comprehensive impaired driving education related to alcohol as well as other drugs, with a focus on adolescents.  Prevention programs at the local level utilizing evidence-based strategies to effect change should reduce the number of incidents involving impaired driving or choosing to ride with someone who is impaired.  Based on research, environmental approaches and evidence-based programs supported by the unique data of the community and selected by key leaders in the community are more effective than programs that are state mandated.  This initiative is specifically targeted to public health, social service, educational or law enforcement agencies or their designees who participate in a community-based prevention coalition.
