October 2001, NAAAPI announced funding to five community-based
organizations that address tobacco and alcohol use in African
American communities. This funding, in the form of subcontracts,
was part of NAAAPI's "Community Partners Program".
The program was supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
and ran from October 2001 to March 2002. Grants ranged from
$9,000 to $10,000 each.
organizations that were awarded the subcontracts included
the Health Promotion Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania,
Inc. (Philadelphia, PA), All Aid International, Inc. (Charleston,
WV); The Medical Foundation, Inc. (Boston, MA); Committed
Caring Faith Communities (St. Louis, MO); and Community Recovery
Services (Berkeley, CA).
NAAAPI is very grateful to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
for the opportunity to meet the needs of the African American
community through the services provided by the funded organizations.
