The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance announces a new grant opportunity for 2020 – the deadline to apply is July 15th, 2020. Completed applications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grants in the amount of $5,000 will be offered to SCA’s and Anti-drug Coalitions to collaborate on an outreach/education campaign with Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) in their areas.
The funding will be used to educate and inform faith leaders about substance misuse utilizing materials from the PA STOP website. This information, including a new Faith Based Tool Kit, will then be disseminated within their faith communities.
This effort is intended to better equip members of faith communities to understand substance misuse, offer support to families and individuals affected by it, reduce stigma, and know how to access services.
CPA held a 30 minute webinar with interested SCA’s, Coalitions, and Faith leaders to provide more information on the grant guidelines, funding, and to answer any questions.
The grant application can be found HERE.
A Planning Guide was developed to assist coalitions and/or SCAs to plan an effective outreach program for faith based leaders in their local areas. Use this guide when applying for the mini-grant designed to fund this outreach effort
