The Kansas Prevention Collaborative- Problem Gambling Community Initiative (KPC-PGCI)

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS), Behavioral Health Services Commission, announces the release of a Request for Applications (RFA) for grants that will facilitate comprehensive community-based strategic planning resulting in local/regional plans to increase awareness of and provide education on problem gambling and related risk and protective factors.

The Kansas Prevention Collaborative-Problem Gambling Community Initiative (KPC-PGCI) is intended to develop strategic, data-driven, and effective awareness, education and prevention approaches for problem gambling and related harms.  These efforts should be targeted toward increasing knowledge regarding problem gambling and toward promoting the availability of no-out of pocket cost treatment for problem gamblers and concerned others. 

The KPC-PGCI has identified market regions that would benefit from strategic planning, implementation, and development of sustainability processes that promote effective, culturally competent education and awareness. More detailed information is available in the Request for Applications (RFA).
