What is a Municipal Alliance?
A Municipal Alliance is a municipal level grassroots organization comprised of parents, community members, teachers, police, school staff, counselors, agency representatives, youth and others interested in the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse. Created in 1989, The Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (GCADA) oversees the Alliances on the State level. GCADA receives money from the Drug Enforcement Demand Reduction Fund (DEDR) which is derived from fines that are levied upon people convicted of drug offenses. The money is granted to each county and then awarded to each municipality with a Municipal Alliance. The Alliances have a task to assess and implement drug and alcohol prevention programs based on the needs of their individual communities. Statewide, the Municipal Alliances exist in over 500 of New Jersey’s municipalities offering over 2000 drug and alcohol prevention programs, serving thousands of residents. Locally, Cape May County has seven Municipal Alliances encompassing 14 Municipalities.
The mission of Sea Isle City Municipal Alliance Committee is to reduce substance abuse by collaborating resources and coordinating planning in order to offer opportunities for building a healthy mind, body and spirit for the entire community of Sea Isle City.
Vision for Sea Isle City is for a healthy, flourishing community free of substance abuse.
