Community Overdose Crisis Grants

Applications for Community Overdose Crisis Innovation grants are now being received. Funding through this program is provided for proven and effective strategies that respond to the overdose crisis, including new initiatives to strengthen pathways to treatment and care; strategies to reach people who use alone, and Indigenous approaches to healing and wellness.

Maximum funding for this grant program is $75,000 per applicant. Application criteria will include an emphasis on geographic reach and innovation. Agencies and coalitions within communities that have an Overdose Emergency Community Action Team (CAT) are eligible to apply for this grant, but funding decisions will take into account equitable distribution of resources across regions affected by the overdose crisis.

The application intake will close on July 13, 2018.

Full project details, application and FAQ are available on the Community Action Initiative website.
