Grant Opportunity


This grant opportunity will provide funding for pilot programs or existing collaborations among local community organizations to enhance harm reduction services to improve access, increase the range of lifesaving services offered, and create linkages with low threshold treatment.

The goals are to:

  • expand existing harm reduction services with novel interventions, such as fentanyl test strips or other drug checking measures
  • develop immediate access to low threshold addiction treatment through clinical partnerships. Low threshold means programs that focus on access and engagement rather than strict rules or barriers to treatment

RIZE plans to award a limited number of grants of up to $150,000 per year for the next two (2) years through this grant.
