Funding
The Alliance receives grant funding from the Governors Alliance, Drug Education Demand Reduction (DEDR) money. The penalties from drug related the courts, probation, and the Department of Correction collect offenses. These monies are distributed by a population based formula and a grant written by the Edgewater Alliance.

The Edgewater Alliance must raise a 25% match in dollars to receive this grant. At present we receive $11, 500. All of this money is used for programming and supplies. The program is volunteer run.
