Funding Opportunity: Reducing Overdose through Community Approaches (ROCA) Mentorship Program

Oct 26, 2022

*Application deadline extended to Monday, January 9, 2023 at 11:59PM EST.*

NACCHO, with support from the CDC, is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for the Reducing Overdose through Community Approaches (ROCA) Mentorship Program.

This funding opportunity pairs mentor local health departments (LHDs) with experience in overdose prevention with mentee LHDs aiming to strengthen their jurisdiction’s capacity. Participating LHDs will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with their mentee/mentor, as well as share experiences and foster connections with a diverse group of peer LHDs within the cohort. This program now offers two tracks from which applicants can select key strategy areas: 1) Overdose Prevention and Response and 2) The Intersection of Adverse Childhood Experiences and Substance Use. Full details of the project outline and requirements can be found in the respective Mentee Request for Proposals and Mentor Request for Proposals.

NACCHO will select up to twenty-five (25) mentee and mentor LHDs to award through this funding opportunity. Each mentee applicant may request up to $150,000 to support project activities. Mentors applying to support one (1) mentee may request up to $70,000, and mentors applying to support two (2) mentees may request up to $125,000. 

Access the online submission platform for the mentee application and the mentor application here (free MyNACCHO account required). Applications must be submitted no later than Monday, January 9, 2023 at 11:59PM EST. Submissions after this deadline will not be considered.

Please see the recording and the slides from the Informational Webinar held on November 8th for more information about this funding opportunity. We have also developed a Frequently Asked Questions document specific to this funding opportunity as well as a Mentee Application Writing Tip Sheet and Why you Should Apply as a ROCA Mentor.

If you have any questions, please email NACCHO’s Overdose, Injury, and Violence Prevention Team at [email protected].
