ABC Board
Abc Board Increases Local Grant Funding
3/31/2010
The Mecklenburg ABC Board has increased the amount of money it is awarding in its Alcohol Awareness Grant Program.
Charlotte, NC – Since 1996, the Mecklenburg County Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board has provided funding up to $25,000 to local organizations through their Alcohol Education Grant Program. Beginning April 1, 2010, applications will be accepted for funding up to $30,000.

North Carolina law mandates that seven percent (7%) of the profits generated by distilled spirits sales and collected by local ABC Boards be spent on alcohol or other drug prevention, education, treatment, or research. Most non-profit, tax-exempt (IRS 501 C-3) charitable organizations that provide these services to Mecklenburg County residents are eligible to apply for grants.

Organizations interested may attend a free workshop to learn more about the Alcohol Education Grant Program. The workshop will be held at 3333 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28206 on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2:00pm. Space is limited; please call 704-731-5866 to register.

Visit the Board website at: www.meckabc.com to download the program guidelines, the grant application and submission directions. The deadline to submit an application is 4:30pm on Friday, April 30, 2010. The grant awards will be made by the Board of Directors and announced by July 15, 2010.
