Foundation / Corporation
Grants averaging between $50,000 and $75,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for programs that address opioid misuse and abuse. Priority will be given to proposals that address prevention and education, pre- and post-treatment programs, and/or safe disposal of unused or expired drugs. Funding is intended for programs that present constructive and innovative solutions to the epidemic.
Understanding the need for expediency, and to simultaneously balance an objective of developing long-term solutions, the opioid resource grant offering will be dedicated to generating ideas from those who know best, tapping into bright and innovative community-focused organizations across the United States.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to identify and leverage existing, proven, evidence-based frameworks and strategies. Applicants may also propose original and innovative projects related to pre- and post-treatment activities such as job training, housing programs, recidivism support, etc., or customize and build upon publicly available projects and/or strategy models
Grants will be awarded for the most innovative and constructive community-facing programs, and priority will be given to concepts addressing these three key areas of focus:
- Safe disposal management programs
- Prevention education
- Pilot programs for new ideas related to pre- and post-treatment activities.
Applications focusing on education may include new concepts or approaches, or proven models. Education initiatives may address a wide spectrum of needs, and priority will be given to the effective dissemination of the following topics:
- Provider education about appropriate opioid prescribing
- Patient education about the risks and effects of prescription opioids, and what to do if they have concerns about addiction
- Public education, especially aimed at rural communities
- Training to reduce youth risk factors, such as delinquency, and boost protective factors, such as decision-making skills for problem-solving and resisting peer pressure
- Preventing teens from initiating problematic opioid use in the first place
- Advising parents of teens to lock up prescription opioid medications and dispose of old pills
- How youth can effectively cope when living with adults with addiction.
Although not required, the Foundation encourages multiple organizations to develop a collective, collaborative partner submission. Partnership, for these awards, is defined as an arrangement between two or more entities or organizations that share a joint interest, where skills, talents, finances, and other resources are shared to achieve a common outcome.
