The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is seeking applications from community-based and Tribal organizations for the Elevate Youth California — Youth Substance Use Disorder Prevention Program. The Center will provide grants of up to $1 million to organization that strive for health equity and that will work on specific culturally and linguistically appropriate prevention, outreach, and education projects focused on youth ages 12 to 26.
Applications due October 1 by 1 p.m. PT.
Funding is focused on communities disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs and criminalization of substance use, which often have less access to treatment and information about substance use supports.
This funding opportunity will support prevention of youth substance use and must be focused on the following outcomes: 1. Investment in youth empowerment, leadership and development, 2. Program implementation through a cultural lens of the impacted community, and 3. The promotion of population-level impacts through policy, systems and environmental change.
The Center will hold two informational webinars about the request for applications. The content on each webinar will be the same and will be repeated. Participation on a webinar is not required, but is strongly encouraged.
