The Tooele County Health Department (TCHD) is seeking proposals for projects that address root causes and factors associated with the youth use of electronic cigarettes, marijuana, and other drugs.

Substance misuse/abuse continue to be an important public health concern contributing to morbidity and mortality rates. Evidence shows that the initiation of substance use in adolescence can lead to higher levels of misuse, abuse, and substance use disorders later in life. TCHD is interested in working with, and supporting, community coalitions and organizations in the early prevention of adverse outcomes related to youth substance abuse. The aim of this funding is to identify innovative projects and partnerships across Weber and Morgan counties who are committed to addressing risk or protective factors identified in the Utah Student Health and Risk Prevention Statewide Survey.
