Funding Available to Reduce Pandemic Stress and Anxiety


SAN ANGELO – The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley (ADACCV) and the Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S. Coalition (Community Action and Resources for Empowerment and Success) want to inform the community of its new state funding to help reduce anxiety and stressors caused from and continuing due to COVID-19.

From the H.R. 33 COVID- 19 funds, ADACCV was provided $180k to assist in the implementation of community-wide activities that reduce stress, address trauma, and/or promote behavioral health and wellness.

A portion of this funding will be used for multiple projects that change physical environment, build community resilience, or improve systematic processes to enhance behavioral health and wellness.

In 2007, CV CARES formed with the mission to reduce substance use through community effort, focusing on youth. CV CARES has been a coalition of the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley, a nonprofit 501(c)3, for over a decade, and collaborates with agencies and individuals from 12 sectors of our community.
