Substance and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program Grant

Substance and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program Grant

Purpose

This Substance and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program funding opportunity is to support implementation of evidence-based, community-driven solutions for preventing substance and alcohol abuse. Systems of prevention services work better than isolated efforts, meaning the best prevention results come from partnerships; therefore, The Rapides Foundation encourages communities to work together across agencies, departments, and sectors for planning and implementing interventions and for gaining support from the populations most impacted by them.

Grant Awards

This is a competitive grant application process and available grant funding from The Rapides Foundation is limited. Grants of up to $300,000 over a three-year period are available.  

Grant proposals should impact residents within the Foundation’s nine-parish service area of: Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn parishes.

Applicants should thoroughly review the Request for Proposals and other key documents included in the Key Materials section (in right column) to see full details, application process and proposal requirements.
