One of the goals of the program is to increase credentialed professional staff employed at substance abuse prevention agencies by offering Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) training opportunities. There is a new process to follow in order to attend CPS classes for free (even here). NJPN now has a scholarship program that works on a voucher system.
