Grants to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations to implement programs that combat drug abuse within the adult community. Applicants must register in the online system several weeks prior to applying. Funding is intended to support new projects and services focused on prevention, intervention, training, treatment, and education. The goal of the program is to reduce substance abuse, and to assist families in accessing the services needed in order to reduce substance misuse behavior.

The Office of Justice Programs announces the availability of Substance Abuse Education and Demand Reduction (SAEDR) Category One funds for the implementation of new projects focused on the adult community. 

The program supports projects designed to educate the public about the dangers of substance abuse and/or reduce demand for these substances. Category One funding supports implementation strategies aimed at combating opioid/heroin overdoses in Pennsylvania communities.

The objectives and anticipated impacts of the program vary by focus and include, but are not limited to:

  • Increase the number of projects implemented by a county opioid task force or coalition;
  • Increase the number of available services related to reducing substance use among adults;
  • Increase family engagement to reduce and eliminate negative behaviors;
  • Improve adult and family decision-making regarding substance use; and
  • Decrease substance misuse in the service area. 

Eligible projects must target the adult community, locally, regionally, or statewide. Further, eligible applicants must demonstrate the proposed program is a proven approach and is research and evidence based. 

Eligible non-profit organizations may apply for funds to support a NEW project. Project expansions or continuations are not eligible for funding under this solicitation.

Term of Contract:

Contingent upon availability of funds, approved applications will be for 24-month projects and have a start date of July 1, 2021 and an end date of June 30, 2023.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations/agencies within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Direct awards cannot be made to governmental entities. Local School Districts are considered governmental entities and are therefore not eligible applicants for these funds.

Applicant organizations, and partner entities, must collaborate with the Technical Assistance Center at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy, Program Evaluation and Research Unit (TAC at Pitt/PERU). Agreement to participate and collaborate with the TAC at Pitt/PERU should be included in the application narrative.

Further, applicants must be in good standing with PCCD to be eligible for these funds.

NOTE: Applications received under 2020 Substance Abuse Education, Cat 1 – Adult in Egrants which are not focused on the implementation of a program for the adult community will be administratively rejected.
