Funding Opportunity - Prevention of Opioid Drug Misuse and Abuse

This post was updated on May 12, 2017.

Grant Opportunity:
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.
