Funding Opportunity - Prevention of Opioid Drug Misuse and Abuse
This post was updated on May 12, 2017.
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).
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.
Attached to this post is the original funding announcement document and the PowerPoint from an Informational Webinar about this funding opportunity that was held on May 2.
