OBH Announces RFP for Persistent Drunk Driving and Law Enforcement

The Colorado Office of Behavioral Health has announced a Request for Proposals for Persistent Drunk Driving and Law Enforcement Fund Grants. Funds will be used to support primary prevention efforts to impaired driving and/or the local conditions that facilitate this behavior at all levels of the community, especially among young drivers. Proposals should focus on comprehensive primary prevention programs and practices that target both general population and subgroups that are at high risk for substance misuse and abuse for those ages 15-34.

Goals to be achieved within 5 years:
● Identify and prioritize risk factors related to impaired driving in the identified community
● Create a comprehensive and collaborative community strategy to change local conditions related to identified risk factors
● Mitigate the effects of local conditions related to identified risk factors within target population. Of critical importance to this project is the ability to implement an environmental strategy. A primary goal of this effort is to create policy change.

Who may apply: Organizations eligible to submit a proposal include governmental entities, such as county, city, schools and school districts, universities, local health or human services departments; other public entities; tribal entities; private non-profit entities; community based organizations; and faith based organizations.
