In 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.

The 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. Take a look at a summary of the projects.
