  • Nov. 30, 2015 3:00 p.m.

The Community Drug Strategy Committee, an initiative of the City of Courtenay, is offering funding to Comox Valley schools and community organizations to create projects that will help to prevent or delay the onset of substance use and/or provide information to promote the reduction of harms associated with substance use.

This year’s theme is “Where We All Belong” and some of the ideas that the committee would like the projects to focus on include: awareness of local substance-use services, continuum of services, compassion, anti-bullying, positive parenting, creating a safe community ,and information on one or more substances.

A maximum of $500 is available for each 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.

To obtain an application for the Call for Proposals 2016 to submit your proposal, contact Karen at drugstrategy@hotmail.com or 250-339-3603. Proposals must be submitted by Friday, Jan. 8 at 4:30 p.m.
