DBHR

A grant opportunity for the Prevention of Opioid Drug Misuse and Abuse


The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DSHS/DBHR) intends to award up to five new grants to public agencies or community-based organizations to provide prevention services to high-need communities.

Grants will be available to eligible high-need communities for services that provide high quality and culturally competent replications of evidence-based and research-based substance use prevention programs and strategies that focus on reducing the misuse and abuse of opioids using a community coalition-driven and data informed process. We call this model the Community Prevention and Wellness initiative (CPWI).

Eligibility:
Eligible applicants will include local community-based non-profit organizations and public agencies with youth and family-serving capacity who demonstrate excellence in service delivery to high-need communities.

Based on a comprehensive review of relevant data, the DSHS/DBHR has identified twenty Washington State communities that meet specific criteria of need for CPWI services to prevent the misuse and abuse of opioid drugs, alcohol and other drugs. 

Qualified grant applicants within the following twenty communities identified by school districts or in some cases high school attendance areas and their feeder schools are eligible to apply for this grant funding:
