About the Coalition
About IMPACT NJ:
In September 2014, the IMPACT NJ Coalition received a Drug-free Communities grant from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).
It is one of only two statewide grants of this kind in the country.
The IMPACT NJ Coalition focuses on reducing alcohol and marijuana use among youth 18 and under throughout the state of New Jersey. Building from current and previous coalitions coordinated by NJPN, IMPACT NJ brings together state and local leaders who are dedicated to sharing their expertise and time as we work collaboratively to achieve our goals.

Stand Up and REBEL: Join Together Atlantic County Youth Coalition
The IMPACT NJ coalition focuses on underage drinking and youth marijuana use. The coalition addresses these substances by creating resources for youth and parents, by providing communities with the tools they need to create substance-free community policies, by supporting other drug free community coalitions and regional coalitions working in target communities, and by sponsoring statewide media campaigns designed to inform and empower communities.
