The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) was created in 2000 to develop a strategic plan to reduce the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among youth and adult populations in Kentucky.
Currently, there are 118 ASAP Board in the 120 counties of the Commonwealth, and Franklin County ASAP is one of them. You can learn more about KY-ASAP at the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy Website.
Our Board receives grants from the state and other sources in order to fund our projects. We maintain a volunteer board of civic leaders and engaged citizens from Franklin County who meet bi-monthly in order to discuss and plan projects in our community.
The Franklin County ASAP Board helped to fund the following projects:
- Franklin County Drug Court

- Westridge Family Resource Center
- Hosted a 'Parents Who Host, Lose The Most' Forum
- Contributed to Cooper/Clayton Smoking Cessation Programs
