Local Action Grants – Guidelines and Application Form

Overdose coalitions throughout BC are invited to apply for OPEN’s Local Action Grants now.

Applications deadline: March 1, 2018 (received by email or mail)


Community Action Initiative (CAI) would like to invite community coalitions currently working on opioid overdose prevention and response to join the Overdose Prevention and Education Network (OPEN)’s February 2018 Local Action granting call.

OPEN Local Action Grants will award successful applicants with $20,000 for fulfilling basic funding criteria, and $40,000 for fulfilling additional criteria. Applications will be accepted during the month of February 2018, with grants disseminated by March 31, 2018. Successful coalitions will have up to 12 months to implement their proposals and spend their grant funds.

We encourage proposals to be daring and creative, as the Local Action Grants will not be tied to direct service outcomes. Instead, we will be working with coalitions at the beginning of the terms of the grant to identify desired outcomes.
