Elevate Youth California: Supporting Capacity Building for Community Organizations Working in Substance Use Disorder Prevention
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation provides grants to strengthen the capacity of emerging grassroots community-based organizations and tribal organizations in California to use innovative practices for substance use disorder prevention among youth ages 12-26. Populations of focus are low-income, rural and/or urban racial, ethnic, and cultural communities disproportionally impacted by the war on drugs. Programs and practices should be healing-centered, trauma-informed, culturally and linguistically appropriate, and use a social justice youth development approach.
For the purpose of this opportunity, capacity building is defined as the investment in the effectiveness and future sustainability of an organization. Capacity building activities should improve upon the operational, programmatic, financial, and/or organizational infrastructure.
Eligible applicants include 501(c)(3) community-based organizations, tribal organizations, and coalitions/collaboratives that work in substance use prevention in California.
