Stacked Deck Mini-Grant
The NCPGP offers mini grants ranging from $1,800 to $5,000 to implement an evidence-based program called Stacked Deck to middle schools, high schools and at-risk community-based programs. Offered in five to six sessions that extend from 35-45 minutes each, the program is aimed at changing gambling-related attitudes, knowledge, beliefs and practices. It also seeks to improve decision-making and problem-solving. The Stacked Deck curriculum is heavily interactive, including activities such as role-playing. Participants have designed posters and produced videos with problem gambling messages and helpline information.
