The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) has recently awarded five non-profit organizations a total of $176,000 in funding grants to support programs addressing problem gambling in the US. These grants are part of the NCPG’s commitment to provide over $1 million in funding between 2022 and 2024.

The awarded organizations have been recognized for their innovative approaches to prevention strategies and their dedication to raising awareness of problem gambling. The financial support from these grants will help these non-profit organizations continue their important work.

Known as the Fall 2023 Agility Grants, these funding opportunities are made possible by the ongoing commitment of the NFL and its NFL Foundation to promote responsible betting. However, the grants are not exclusively sponsored by the NFL, as online gambling platform Fanduel is also a contributor to the fund.

Two of the organizations awarded grants, The Alabama Council on Compulsive Gambling Prevention (ACCG) and The Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado, focus on prevention through innovative programs that engage young people using gaming and art. They work with schools in Alabama and Denver to educate students about the dangers of gambling addiction.

The other three organizations receiving grants, the AdCare Educational Institute of Maine, Inc., The LCADA Way, and the Maryland Council on Problem Gambling, are recognized for their efforts in amplifying prevention efforts. They play a crucial role in raising awareness and providing resources to combat problem gambling.

The NCPG is dedicated to preventing and reducing the harm caused by problem gambling. It offers a wide range of services throughout the US, providing solutions for those affected by this issue. The organization maintains a neutral stance on gambling while prioritizing the well-being of individuals and communities.
