ACHORAGE (AP) -- A number of grants have been awarded in efforts to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome and alcohol abuse among Alaska's children, Sen. Ted Stevens announced Thursday.
Among the grant recipients is the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. in Bethel, in line for $1.5 million for an inhalant intervention project at Bethel. Another $1.5 million is for the Southcentral Foundation, which will use the money for adolescent substance abuse treatment.
The funds, which total nearly $3.7 million, were earmarked by Stevens in the 2000 fiscal budget, according to a press release from the senator's office.
