To manage the portion of the funds devoted to alcohol and drug treatment or prevention, the city of Garden City and Finney County empower an Alcohol Fund Advisory Committee (AFAC) to solicit applications and make recommendations for use of the local funds. AFAC distributes these funds in a manner that enables the group to monitor effectiveness. Applicants are expected to provide a description of how requested funds will be used and provide documentation throughout the year as to success in fulfilling their commitment.

Any person, civic group, not-for-profit agency or private entity will be considered for receiving funds, except for those that would qualify for the AFAC funds, Arts Grant funds, and those applicants that have the ability to levy funds.
