Yesterday, Governor Kathy Hochul announced $4.5 million dollars in funding to 10 organizations to establish substance use and prevention coalitions in New York State. One of those organizations was Tompkins Cortland Community College for the Southern Tier Region of New York.
Providers receiving funding will focus on the priority populations.
“Addiction can affect anyone, and helping those who have been impacted, as well as their families, is personal to me,” Governor Hochul said. “Like far too many New Yorkers, my family has lost a loved one battling with addiction. New York State will never waiver in its commitment to establishing effective addiction prevention services, and my administration will continue to be laser-focused on supporting this important mission through coalitions such as these.”
Each award recipient will receive $150,000 per year for three years, for a total of $450,000.
