The new Overdose Data to Action grant, housed at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Request for Applications (RFA) has been released! More information is included below, and please share widely with your networks.
Purpose: The purpose of these funds is to prevent opioid misuse and overdose using existing data to inform proven public health approaches. In 2019, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Overdose Data to Action Program awarded funds to Colorado's Opioid Overdose Prevention Program at CDPHE to reduce opioid overdose in Colorado. The Overdose Data to Action grant allows the Opioid Overdose Prevention Program to partner with organizations across the state to start local, proven prevention initiatives to support prevention strategies. CDPHE will distribute up to 10 awards to offer more services at the local level by supporting proven community coalition efforts over the next 2 1/2 years.
Eligibility: Community-based organizations; non-profit entities; Governmental entities such as county, city, local health or human services departments; other public entities; and federally recognized Native American tribes in Colorado, or a nonprofit organization providing services to eligible tribes on a reservation or federally recognized tribal land with a letter of support from the applicable tribal council are also eligible to apply.
