Drug Overdose Prevention Mini-Grant

The Rhode Island Department of Health is offering mini-grants to qualified community-based organizations to support projects that address the opioid overdose epidemic in Rhode Island. Eligible applicants are nonprofit organizations that demonstrate experience providing services, support, and engagement to populations affected by overdose in Rhode Island.

Mini-grants will be offered up to $4,900. The proposed project must be data-driven and based on findings from the Fall 2016 and/or Winter 2017 Report of the Rhode Island Multidisciplinary Review of Drug Overdose Death Evaluation Team (MODE Team). Agencies are encouraged to target high-risk populations and/or develop culturally specific messages when considering how to craft their approach. The intent of these projects is to raise awareness, change behaviors, and impact the long- term objective of decreasing rates of non-fatal/ fatal drug overdoses in Rhode Island. Projects can match MODE recommendations; however, they are not required to do so.

Please submit an application, an agency W-9, and proof on non-profit status no later than Friday, March 17, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. via email to Jennifer Koziol at: Jennifer.koziol@health.ri.gov.

Agencies will be notified of grant acceptance within three weeks of the application deadline. Mini-grant projects must be completed within three months of the award date. Final report, project deliverables (if applicable), and project invoice must be submitted no later than 30 days after the project end date.
