The National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is soliciting applications for rapid response grant funding to support innovative harm reduction strategies and services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through a competitive Request for Applications (RFA) process, up to 15 implementation sites will be selected to employ and enhance novel and innovative strategies and adaptations to current practices to address the needs of people who use drugs (PWUD), including preventing opioid overdose. In addition to funding, selected organizations will receive and participate in training and technical assistance (TTA) opportunities. Awards will be made in fixed price amounts up to $33,000 beginning in November 2020 for a six-month project period.

Applications must be submitted here by Monday, October 19th at 11:59 p.m. ET. More information is available here.
