Some $23 million will be available from an anti-drugs fund next year, Commissioner for Narcotics Clarie Lo Ku Ka-lee said yesterday.

Applications for the Beat Drugs Fund will be accepted from today until December 31 from bodies, including government departments, organising anti-drugs programmes.

The awards will be announced in April or May.

Organisations focusing on parental participation in the fight against drug abuse, and those discouraging young people from trying drugs, would be given priority, Mrs Lo said.
