Grants to Washington, DC nonprofits and community organizations for the development and implementation of evidence-based programs to prevent opioid use in youth ages 12 to 25. Funding is intended for programs that address the complex risk factors which can precipitate youth substance abuse.
The RFA is designed to determine the readiness of applicants to fully develop and implement a data-driven SPF planning process to achieve target outcomes. Applicants that receive a grant award are expected to develop a Work Plan (based on logic models provided by DBH) for the prevention and reduction of opioid misuse among youth in their designated ward.
The District of Columbia’s Opioid Response (DCOR) initiative is focused on addressing the unmet needs and reducing opioid overdose related deaths in DC through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services. Specifically with regard to prevention efforts, the District is seeking qualified applicants to identify, select, and implement appropriate evidence-based interventions and environmental strategies for addressing opioid misuse.
Prevention efforts shall target youth and young adults between the ages of 12 to 25 living in high need communities. Furthermore, for the purposes of this grant, all eight (8) Wards have been defined as “high need communities” for prevention.
GrantWatch ID#: 185216
One (1) applicant will be selected for each of the eight (8) Wards within the District.
The grant will be for a period of six (6) months from the award date. Grant may be continued for up to one (1) additional year based on documented project success, availability of funding, and DBH Director’s approval of a Notice of Grant Award (NOGA) via a Continuation Modification. Grant recipients will be expected to begin project implementation on April 1, 2019 or after the Conceptual Framework, Work Plan, Budget and Budget Narrative Justification have been approved by DBH.
