Current grant recipients include: Division of Indian Work, Minneapolis American Indian Center, Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center, Native American Community Clinic, and Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS).

CHOICES

CHOICES is a program for women who are not pregnant (but could become pregnant) and are drinking alcohol at risky levels. It is an evidence-based intervention that helps women to reduce or stop drinking, use birth control effectively, or both. The goal of this program is to empower women to make safer choices in order to reduce the risk of unplanned, alcohol-exposed pregnancies. Proof Alliance offers a grant for one CHOICES site and is currently exploring the impacts of CHOICES on a college campus.

The current grant recipient is St. Cloud State University.
