Grant Description
Grants to New York nonprofit community coalitions and nonprofit agencies to improve health equity for underserved and at-risk communities. Funding is intended to provide substance abuse prevention programming to vulnerable populations. Eligible proposals serve veterans, transitional youth, new Americans, people over the age of 50 years, and/or New Yorkers with disabilities.

To address certain gaps in health equity, OASAS proposes to fund substance use/misuse prevention-focused coalitions to engage vulnerable and isolated communities, who are connected by cultural identity, in developing and implementing environmental change prevention strategies in these communities.

Coalitions funded will use the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) to develop culturally appropriate and tailored prevention for specific underserved communities: Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC), veterans, transitional youth (i.e.., transitioning out of foster care or juvenile justice system), new Americans (i.e., immigrants, migrants, refugees), LGBTQIA+ individuals, people over the age of 50 years, and/or people with disabilities in New York State. By using local data sources that can identify culturally specific substance use/misuse issues, a community can foster population-specific prevention strategies to reduce and delay underage substance use/misuse and instill lasting positive changes for their high-risk communities.

Additional Criteria for Eligibility
Eligible Applicants
- Not-for-profit community coalitions or not-for-profit agencies that have experience in prevention coalition building but do not currently have county, federal, or state funding for the coalition and its activities.

A community coalition is defined as a group of stakeholders who represent diverse organizations, constituencies, and community members who agree to work together to achieve a common goal to reduce substance use/misuse, and problem gambling behaviors. More than any other entity, community coalitions are poised to connect the 12 sectors of businesses, parents, media, law enforcement, schools, faith organizations, health providers, prevention providers, addictions treatment, mental health, social service agencies, and government for a wide-ranging representation of a community.
