This grant proposal submission period is for invited applicants only. Only applicants who have received approval of a previously submitted Letter of Intent are invited to submit a Full Proposal. Applicants should become familiar with the submission deadlines as outlined in the Substance and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program RFP located in the Key Materials section.
Applicants are encouraged to schedule a call or meeting with the Healthy Behaviors Initiative Program Officer to discuss their Full Proposal before submission. Please schedule the meeting at least two weeks before the proposal is due. Contact Trayce Snow, Senior Program Officer, at email@example.com or 318-443-3394 to request a meeting.
Please note: This grant proposal submission period is for invited applicants with approved Letters of Intent only. 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.
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.
