Department of Health Offers Recovery Support Services Mini-Grants
The Anne Arundel County Department of Health’s Bureau of Behavioral Health is seeking community organizations and community service providers to apply for mini-grants to provide recovery support services or activities in Anne Arundel County. A total of $25,000 in mini-grants will be awarded for Fiscal Year 2014 projects. Preference will be given to nonprofit organizations.
The purpose of the mini-grants will be to provide community services or activities that support persons in recovery and reduce the stigma of substance use and co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. The services offered may include, but are not limited to job training, recovery coaching, child care, transportation, community outreach or recovery awareness activities, exercise classes, drug-free social events and guest speakers.
Grant guidelines and applications are available online at the Department website, www.aahealth.org, under “Hot Topics.” The deadline for grant applications is Monday, October 28, 2013.
