Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) - Division of Behavioral Health - Bureau of Substance Abuse
Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies to support volunteer staff in youth substance abuse prevention and mentoring programs. Applications are invited from qualified applicants that will provide education to community members on substance abuse, with an emphasis on prescription drug and opioid abuse.
Funding is also intended to build capacity of organizations who need to broaden understanding of opioid and prescription drug abuse; and form coalitions and partnerships to address the growing crisis.
AmeriCorps is a national service program funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). CNCS is a federal agency established in 1993 to engage Americans of all ages and backgrounds in intensive community-based service. In exchange for their service, AmeriCorps members may receive a living allowance to defray costs while serving and, upon successful completion of their term, an education award to help finance their college education, vocational training, training approved by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, or to repay qualified existing student loans. Successful programs utilize service as a strategy to meet community needs, while supporting the development and growth of the AmeriCorps members serving with the organization.
The purpose of AmeriCorps State is to engage AmeriCorps members in direct service and capacity-building activities to address unmet community needs.
The organizations that receive grants are responsible for recruiting, selecting, and supervising AmeriCorps members to serve in their programs.
Funding within this RFP will help support the mentoring/substance abuse prevention/recovery community organization program in meeting AmeriCorps expectations including site supervisor time to oversee the member, office supplies and space, travel and registration expenses to attend required meetings or optional trainings, AmeriCorps member uniforms, AmeriCorps signage and banners, etc. The Department will separately fund a living stipend and other benefits to support each AmeriCorps member. AmeriCorps members who complete all requirements during their term of service will then be eligible for an Education Award.
All funded applicants will assist AmeriCorps members in obtaining the following goals of the Department AmeriCorps Substance Abuse Prevention Program including:
1. All AmeriCorps members will assist each program in creation/review/strengthening of a Substance Abuse Prevention Sustainability Plan with support from the Department via trainings, meetings and templates.
2. AmeriCorps members will recruit 300 new mentors and/or volunteers (at least 10 per each full-time member and 5 per each half-time, quarter-time, and minimal-time member). Each volunteer will engage in an average of 2.2 hours of volunteering.
3. AmeriCorps members will create and facilitate 195 community based opioid and prescription drug misuse prevention trainings (at least 12 per each full-time member and 8 per each half-time, and 4 per each quarter-time, and minimal-time member) focused on opioid and prescription drug misuse education to at least 2,000 participants.
