Life Unites Us Community Award Grant Program
Life Unites Us Campaign
$10,000 to $25,000
February 9th, 2024
Life Unites Us is an evidence-based statewide public health campaign funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) in partnership with Penn State Harrisburg, the Public Goods Project, and Shatterproof. The goal of the Life Unites Us campaign is to promote knowledge about substance use disorder (SUD) and reduce the stigma associated with addiction by sharing stories from individuals and family members living in recovery and broadcasting a message of hope throughout the state. Stigma is one of the biggest barriers to treatment for those struggling with addiction.
The Life Unites Us Community Award Grant Program was created as an effort to focus on community-building and leveraging the work of organizations in the state. The 2024 grant cycle will mark our third round of funding.
The Life Unites Us Community Award Grant Program aims to engage and empower community-based organizations (CBOs) in Pennsylvania to develop and implement outreach activities that decrease stigma and increase community understanding of substance use disorder (SUD), medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD), harm reduction strategies, treatment, and recovery support services for the individual or the entire family system.
