CDOT's Highway Safety Office has released an RFA on Community Level Approaches to Alcohol-Impaired Driving Prevention. The purpose of this CDOT funding, with technical assistance support from CDPHE, is to partner with local agencies to increase safety by addressing the root causes of alcohol-impaired driving. Awarded agencies will engage community stakeholders in decision-making and use local data to identify evidence-based or evidence-informed prevention strategies that reduce risk factors and promote protective factors commonly associated with excessive alcohol use. By setting population-level goals to address excessive alcohol consumption, coalitions can drive efforts that reduce alcohol-impaired driving crashes and fatalities as well as other alcohol-related consequences, such as violence, cancer, and poor mental health outcomes.
