NGO service development grants: Applications are now open!

The Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) invites non-government organisations (including Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations) that receive funding from NSW Health to deliver AOD prevention, harm reduction and/or treatment services (via the NSW Ministry of Health or Local Health Districts) to apply for funding under the NGO Service Development Grant Program.

The program enables eligible organisations to undertake projects to improve their operations and amenities to better respond to the current demand for AOD services and future needs of people seeking AOD support.

Eligible organisations are invited to apply for one-off grants in one of three categories (up to $25,000 ex GST, up to $100,000 ex GST and up to $300,000 ex GST) for costs related to information technology, refurbishment, amenity upgrades, and equipment that will support organisations to meet the key objectives of the NSW Health Future Health report and enable alignment with priorities of the Ice Inquiry.

The total funding pool available is $5,880,000.

Applications open: 5 June 2023

Applications close: 31 July 2023
