ASHEBORO N.C. – This week, the Asheboro ABC Board has announced the availability of 1st and 2nd quarter 2023 grant funds for the treatment of alcoholism or substance abuse or for research or education on alcohol or substance abuse. 

The grants are a part of a program established by state lawmakers under NC § 18B-805. That statute requires that at least seven percent (7%) of the gross receipts from the stores shall be spent for the treatment of alcoholism or substance abuse, or for research or education on alcohol or substance abuse.

“The Asheboro ABC Board can either give the required 7% to Randolph County for use as set out by GS18B-805(h) or the Asheboro ABC Board can award the funds directly to an agency or person to be used by that agency or person for the purposes set out by GS18B-805(h),” explained Rodney Johnson, General Manager of the Asheboro ABC Board. ” The Asheboro ABC Board chose to award the funds to a local (Randolph County) agency or person who will best use the funds for the purposes set out by GS18B-805(h). Thus, any agency or person wanting the funds must complete a grant application enabling the Asheboro ABC Board to select the best candidate.”

The exact amount of funds available is dependent upon sales and cannot be determined at this time, said Johnson in a press release.

Based upon past revenues, estimated first quarter funds will total $10,000 (available in late April or early May 2023) and estimated second quarter funds will total $12,000 (available in late July or early August 2023).

Applicants may apply for these funds by submitting the information below to the Asheboro ABC Board, no later than 1:00pm, Friday, February 3, 2023.

  • Organization Name, Address, Phone Number, Email/Web address (if available) and Contact Person.
