Brown County "DARE" program at risk of losing funding

Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - As the Green Bay Packers continue to snap up property around Lambeau Field, an anti-drug program might lose nearly all of its revenue as a result.

Brown County's "DARE" program -- the Drug Abuse Resistance Effort -- benefits from a parking lot near Lambeau.

Sheriff John Gossage says the program gets about $230,000 a year from parking cars on gamedays -- and while the Packers say they can use the lot this year, there's no guarantee beyond that.

The Brown County "DARE" program has four full-time officers who teach an anti-drug curriculum for 16 weeks each year in 57 schools in Brown County.

The Packers have been buying property around Lambeau for several years, with the goal of providing retail and entertainment revenues to keep the team thriving in the future.
