Helpline Modernization Project

With funding from the NFL Foundation, we’re revamping the National Problem Gambling Helpline Network. We aim to enhance the efficiency of the helpline, improve access across the country and ensure that everyone who reaches out receives high-quality care.

Agility Grants

A strategic NCPG initiative, Agility Grants offer funding to nonprofit organizations across the country for problem gambling prevention programs. The goal of these grants is to fill in gaps for areas that currently have no such services, as well as bolster promising efforts in existing programs.

Since few people with gambling disorder seek help, early identification is critical. The Screening Standards Manual provides a non-exhaustive review of problem gambling screening tools for clinicians.

Gambling Assessment Manual

After a positive screening evaluation, the next step is a thorough assessment. Our Gambling Assessment Manual provides guidance for determining the severity of an individual’s gambling disorder.
