Purpose

This funding opportunity provides grants to increase access to peer support services for individuals recovering from substance use disorder in Colorado.

Preference will be given to organizations with projects that:

  • Are trauma-informed and culturally and linguistically responsive to meet the needs of people in recovery and their families
  • Reflect one or more of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration's (SAMHSA's) four dimensions of recovery: home, health, purpose, and community
  • Recovery services are designed to decrease the ways that stigma acts as a barrier to access and the recovery journey
  • Include a multi-generational approach to providing services and supports
  • Are evidence-informed and/or help to build the evidence

Examples of projects that will be considered for funding include:

  • Peer mentoring and coaching
  • Peer and family resource navigation
  • Recovery group facilitation
  • Building community through peer social or support networks
Eligibility

Eligible applicants include community-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies that propose projects that:

  • Align with the Foundation's cornerstones with efforts to bring health in reach for all Coloradans
  • Serve Coloradans age 18 and over
