California Youth Substance Use Disorder Prevention Program
The Sierra Health Foundation and California Department of Health Care Services are providing funding and technical assistance for organizations that are providing substance use disorder prevention, outreach, and education focused on youth in low-income rural and urban areas of California.
Funding will be used for projects designed to:
- Increase youth understanding of substance use disorder
- Reduce community and individual stigma of use and treatment
- Increase recognition of the chronic nature of the disease of addiction
- Build substance use disorder prevention education into community outreach and services
The program intends to invest in a cohort of organizations and create a community of practice that offer racially and culturally responsive, population-based and place-based approaches. The focus is on California's demographic communities that were disproportionately impacted by past and current drug policies and criminalized for substance use disorder.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit, community-based organizations, Tribal organizations, and coalitions in California working for health equity and that will work on specific culturally and linguistically appropriate prevention, outreach, and education projects focused on youth from 12-26 years old.
Up to $1,000,000 for 3 year project period.
