MADD Georgia will use the funds to continue to offer educational programs for prevention and awareness of impaired driving and underage drinking with its Power of Parents and Power of You(th) programs. The grant provides much-needed funding to reduce the occurrence of drunk and drugged driving throughout the state by providing DUI prevention initiatives for law enforcement, military, educational, and community groups. MADD will also utilize these resources to support GOHS campaigns such as Hands Across the Border, Click It or Ticket, and law enforcement recognition events, including MADD Georgia’s Annual Golden Shield Honors. MADD Georgia program staff serves as a team member on the state’s Impaired Driving and Young Adult Driving Task Forces.
