Applications Available for Community Addictions Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Grants Program
August 1, 2022
Applications are being accepted for this year’s Community Addictions Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Grants Program. Individuals, community groups and non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply for project funding before the application deadline on September 30, 2022.
The grants program is designed to support projects by individuals, community groups and non-profit organizations in the prevention of addictions and promotion of positive mental health. This year, an additional $60,000 has been added to the grants budget as part of Budget 2022 funding for the Life Promotion Suicide Prevention Action Plan, bringing the total support available for the grants to $200,000.
Aligned with recommendations from Health Accord NL, program funding is administered by the Provincial Government in partnership with the four regional health authorities. Each regional health authority has dedicated addiction prevention and mental health promotion staff available to provide advice, support and resources to applicants. Projects should align with one or more of these priority areas:
- Suicide Prevention;
- Life Promotion;
- Prevention of alcohol and other substance use related harms;
- Promotion of mental wellness.

“We know the integral role individuals, community groups and organizations play in creating conditions that contribute to the optimal health and wellbeing of our residents. These grants build upon the strength of community leaders who are working in partnership with regional health authorities and government to improve mental health and prevent illness and substance use disorders. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to submit an application and help make a difference in their communities.”
