City Pilots

The Foundation supports prevention interventions that aim to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. These interventions are adapted by the local steering committees to take each community’s unique context into account. Interventions include:

Screening and brief interventions by health providers

Family and school-based interventions, such as communities that care and brief-motivational interviewing

Traffic and road safety interventions, such as roadside breath testing programs

Alcohol-related violence prevention efforts

Environmental interventions, such as responsible beverage service programs

Social marketing and behavior change communications campaigns

Alcohol Health Literacy

Alongside the City Pilots, the Foundation supports the advancement of alcohol health literacy. For more information about this work, see Tufts University’s website on the alcohol health literacy work that we’ve funded.

We follow a strict set of funding criteria to guide our funding decisions. Read more about our Funding Criteria here.
