The Haverford Township Police Department will use some of its $39,652 grant for its INTERCEPT program, while the Springfield Township Police Department will use its $39,565 grant to fund officer overtime on RUDD enforcement.

The Valley Forge Military Academy Foundation is planning to use its $39,252 grant to implement projects such as an Alcohol Wise educational program and enforcement patrols.

“This year, we’re awarding a record amount of funding to the most grant recipients we’ve ever approved through this grant program” said PLCB Chairman Tim Holden. “Preventing underage and irresponsible drinking is an important part of our mission, one we take very seriously.”
