The Franklin County Health Department has received a $170,000 grant from UK’s Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC). The grant is renewable for three years (total of $510,000) and will support Just Say Yes, an initiative to stop substance use before it starts by providing healthy activities and environments for youth.

Just Say Yes, which also receives support from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky, grew out of a partnership between FCHD, Yes Arts and the Franklin County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (ASAP). This collaboration quickly expanded to include the City of Frankfort, Franklin County Fiscal Court, both local school districts, the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce, and a host of other community and faith-based partners.
