Community Drug Strategy Committee offers funding to Comox Valley schools

Community Drug Strategy Committee, an initiative of the City of Courtenay, offers funding to Comox Valley schools.

In 2008, the Community Drug Strategy Committee, an initiative of the City of Courtenay, began to offer funding to Comox Valley schools to create projects that would help to prevent or delay the onset of substance use.

The committee also provides information to promote the reduction of harms associated with substance use.

Starting in 2010, funding was extended to include community organizations.

For the fifth year in a row, the committee is pleased to offer this funding. A maximum of $500 is provided to each school or community project.

To obtain funding, a simple, one-page proposal must be submitted explaining the plans for activities or programming and a specific plan for using the funding. The project should be tailored to meet the needs of the organization or school. Client or student input should be included in the development and implementation of the proposal and project, as much as possible.

Once a proposal is approved, each project will be completed with a final summary report that must be submitted. School projects will have to be completed by June 7. Community projects will have to be completed by Nov. 29.

Proposals to receive funding must be submitted by Jan. 8 at 4:30 p.m. to drugstrategy@hotmail.com, attention Karen Rushton.

For more information on funding, submitting a proposal or project ideas, contact Karen at drugstrategy@hotmail.com or 250-339-3603.
