PHOENIX — The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) has awarded $4.7 million in grant funding to 27 Arizona programs to enhance and increase parental or caregiver involvement in substance abuse prevention for one or numerous substances. Funding will be used to support programs in Arizona's urban, rural, and tribal communities.
“Arizona is grateful for the ongoing work of partners statewide to prevent substance abuse,” said Director Maria Cristina Fuentes. “Parents and caregivers play a critical role in substance abuse prevention and education. I’m looking forward to seeing the impact this funding will have on families across our state.”
