Research and evaluation capacity building grants are coming soon

Applications will open at the end of August for NSW AOD services to apply for one-off grants related to research and evaluation capacity building activities including staff costs, research software infrastructure and activities that add to the evidence base.

A total funding pool of $400,000 will be available. This funding is an initiative from both the Special Commission of Inquiry into the Drug Ice that made several recommendations which are dependent on AOD services having the capacity to engage in research, evaluation and monitoring and from the recent study conducted by NADA and DACRIN.

Applications for these grants will be open to all 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) and will be competitive.

Guidelines for applicants and application forms will be uploaded to the NADA website when applications open.

Please email Jo Penhallurick if you have any questions.
