The UNODC DAPC grants programme is launching a Call for Proposals with the aim of funding not-for-profit organisations working in the area of substance use prevention whose projects are aimed at implementing evidence-based substance use prevention programs for and with youth. Applicants from low- and middle-income countries are eligible for grant awards of USD 10,000 to USD 17,000.
The DAPC grant funding under this Call for Proposals will be awarded projects that:
- Are focused on evidence-based prevention of substance use. This is assessed on the basis of how well the project activities are in line with the types of interventions and policies found to be effective in preventing substance use based on the available scientific evidence, as outlined in the International Standards on Drug Use Prevention;
- Are targeting young persons under the age of 15 and implemented in a developmentally appropriate way;
- Support the active participation of youth in their communities. Proposals should demonstrate youth as active agents in effective substance use prevention, including meaningful involvement in the development, dissemination, and implementation process of evidence-based substance use programs; and connect youth to the activities of the UNODC Youth Initiative.
The applicant is a non-profit making organisation (CSOs including NGOs, CBOs) registered for not less than two (2) years under the relevant Laws of the country where it is registered;
• The applicant is directly responsible for the preparation and management of the project, i.e. not acting as an intermediary;
• The applicant has prior experience of at least two years implementing activities in the area of substance use prevention, health education, youth empowerment and/or other related field of work;
• The requested grant amount is less than the organization’s annual income from the previous year;
Proposals with budgets ranging from USD 10,000 to USD 17,000 will be considered for award. Please note that value for money will be assessed as a part of the rating criteria and proposed budgets should be expressed in USD.
