EUREKA- The grassroots group looking to solve methamphetamine problems in Humboldt County have been awarded a $2,000 grant. The money was donated to the group from the Humboldt Area Foundation to start up their organization.

The Humboldt Meth Abuse Awareness Project will use the funds to establish basic administrative needs and develop an advertising campaign.

The group is a collection of community members that have come together in reaction to what they say is an increase in crime and violence associated with methamphetamine. The group met in January to help address the topic and involve community members in the movement.

The group will meet Wednesday to start developing the media campaign.
