Alcohol & Girls: Making Prevention A Priority

Funding Opportunity to Support Development of New Programming for Girls – Request for Proposals

Community Action Initiative is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity!

Within British Columbia, there is increasing recognition at the local and provincial level that public action to address the issue of risky drinking among young girls is needed, along with more youth and community-led programming opportunities.

The purpose of this one-time $25,000 funding is to support the community sector to create ways to tailor youth programming specifically to young girls (grades 7-12) with the goal of increasing resilience and reducing risky drinking behaviours.
Non-government, not-for-profit, community-based organizations or First Nations, Métis or Urban Aboriginal organizations in British Columbia are invited to apply for this grant.

Applications must be completed through the CAI Online Grant System, and are due by 12:00 pm (PST) on November 12, 2019. The link to the CAI Online Grant System, and important application guidelines can be found on the CAI website.

Key dates:
• CAI Online Grant System opens: October 15, 2019
