Midwest Asian Health Association

Helping Chicago’s Midwest Asian Health Association and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center Secure Funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

The Midwest Asian Health Association, partnering with the Puerto Rican Cultural Center, turned to Millennia Consulting to help them craft a proposal to SAMHSA to fund The McKinley Park Underage Drinking and Other Substance Prevention Coalition. The Coalition will work to prevent substance abuse use among youth (age 12 to 19) in the McKinley Park neighborhood of Chicago through building partnerships, assessing the community’s needs and resources, developing strategic plans, and implementing and evaluating programs for awareness, advocacy, education, and intervention. The clients will receive an anticipated $625,000 over five years.
