The Georgia chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a $138,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) for the 2020 grant year.
MADD plans to use the money to continue to offer educational programs for the prevention and consequences of impaired driving and underage drinking with the Power of Parents and Power of You(th) programs. The grant will provide much-needed funding to reduce the occurrence of drunk and drugged driving throughout the state by proving DUI prevention initiatives for law enforcement, military, educational, and community groups. MADD will utilize these monies to support GOHS campaigns such as Hand Across the Border, Click It Or Ticket and law enforcement recognition events, including MADD Georgia’s Annual Golden Shield Honors. MADD serves as a team member on the state’s Impaired Driving and Young Adult Driving Task Forces.
