DWI GRANT COUNCIL DISTRIBUTES $17 MILLION
TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS FOR DWI
PREVENTION AND ENFORCEMENT EFFORTS
SANTA FE – The Department of Finance and Administration today announced that the
DWI Grant Council awarded $17.4 million in Local DWI Grant funds to New Mexico’s
local governments to combat instances of driving while intoxicated (DWI).
These funds will be used by counties, cities and pueblos throughout the state for a wide
range of activities including prevention, enforcement, alcohol-related domestic violence
prevention, outpatient treatment and alternative sentencing.
Local programs pledged an additional $6.6 million in matched funds, giving New Mexico
a total of $24 million for local DWI program services next fiscal year.
Most school districts provide alcohol prevention activities using Local DWI Grant funds
including alcohol-free events and evidence-based curriculum, such as MADD’s
Protecting You/Protecting Me program.
Of the $17.4 million awarded, approximately $6.9 million will be used for alcohol
detoxification and treatment programs for jail-based and outpatient treatment.
The Department of Finance and Administration administers the Local DWI Grant
program, and assisted the DWI Grant Council in reviewing funding applications.
