DAPA Grants help to provide a fun and safe social environment at Harvard. Our committee subsidizes* both registered events containing alcohol and alternative alcohol-free events. To that end, the grants fund: (1) Substantial food items at registered parties with alcohol during high risk nights (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights), and (2) food for alcohol-free events on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The grants do NOT fund alcohol, mixers, nonsbustantial food, decorations, very small gatherings, or off-campus events.
*Note: the goal of DAPA Grants to disperse our funds across campus during high risk hours, therefore, we do not fully fund food budgets at events, rather we subsidize; a general rule of thumb is about $1 per person attending the event.
