The National Council for Mental Wellbeing, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), invites organizations to apply for grant funding to support one-year pilot projects integrating harm reduction strategies and public safety initiatives. Through a competitive Request for Funding Applications (RFA) process, National Council staff and project partners will select up to eight implementation sites to implement evidence-based or promising strategies through collaborative partnerships with public safety agencies to reduce risk of overdose and other drug-related harms for people who use drugs (PWUD) and people with substance use disorders (PWSUD) who are or may become justice-involved. In addition to funding support, selected implementation sites will receive and participate in training and technical assistance (TTA) opportunities. Awards will be made in amounts of up to $81,250 beginning in January 2023.
Application information and instructions are available at http://s.iir.com/HR_PS_Pilots_RFA. Applications must be submitted online at https://nationalcouncil.awardsplatform.com/ by Friday, December 23, 2022, at 11:59 p.m., ET. Late submissions will not be accepted. Please contact Rachel Cretcher at RachelC@thenationalcouncil.org with any questions.
