Funding Opportunity: Shared Risk and Protective Factor Approach to Substance Misuse Prevention
FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR A SHARED RISK & PROTECTIVE FACTOR APPROACH TO SUBSTANCE MISUSE PREVENTION
The purpose of this Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Request for Applications (RFA) is to solicit applications from local organizations and agencies to implement an evidence-based shared risk and protective factor approach to preventing substance misuse in Colorado. There are two options for funding: Option A allows you to organize your community to be prepared to address any upstream prevention needs. Awardees develop the community coalition’s skills so they are prepared to review data and address solutions over time, no matter what the solution may be. Option B allows you to organize your community for one specific solution you have already identified. You are ready to act on this one strategy, and the funding may end sooner than Option A since your community already knows the solution you will seek. Both options will continue to emphasize our commitments to community mobilization, data-informed and evidence-informed decision-making, and a focus on racial and social equity.
