The Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention can help community organizations obtain grants by providing grant writing assistance.

    One Pager – Grant Writing Assistance Program

    2020 Colorado Grant Writing Assistance for Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery of Substance Use Disorders

    Funds are intended to “aid local communities in need of assistance in applying for grants to access state and federal money to address opioid and other substance use disorders in their communities.” This is inclusive of a continuum of strategies related to prevention, harm reduction, intervention, treatment, and recovery.

    This grant writing assistance program is intended to help local government and non-profit organizations, with limited budgets and limited in-house grant writing expertise, to apply for those funds.


    Eligible applicants are local government and non-profit organizations with limited budgets and no in-house grant writing expertise, with a priority preference for those located in or serving rural and frontier counties in Colorado or serving traditionally underserved communities.

    At the this time LLCs and private corporations are not eligible to apply.


    Applications available between July 13, 2020 and December 11, 2020.

    Funding available through December 30, 2020.

    PLEASE NOTE: We ask you complete this form at least 3 weeks prior (with exception of COVID-19 relief funds) to the deadline of the grant for which you are applying for if you wish to use one of the Consortium’s contracted grant writers.  All forms must be submitted by December 11, 2020 to be eligible for funds.
