|Drug Policy Alliance Accepting Applications for Advocacy
The Drug Policy Alliance ( http://www.drugpolicy.org/ ) has announced that it will allocate another $1.4 million to its Advocacy Grants Program.
The program seeks to promote policy change and advance drug- policy reform at the local, state, and national levels by strategically funding smaller, geographically limited, or single-issue organizations and projects.
The program works to raise awareness and promote change through two vehicles:
1) Promoting Policy Change: This general funding cycle targets organizations working to advance drug-policy reform at the local, state, and national levels through advocacy, grassroots organizing, and education. Generally, the cap on grants awarded during the Promoting Policy Change cycle is $50,000 each, with an approximate allocation in total funding of $1.2 million. The deadline for Promoting Policy Change program grants is June 18, 2007.
2) Rapid Response/Special Opportunities: This monthly funding cycle is for time-sensitive projects to respond or take advan- tage of strategic public education and campaigns to block drug-war initiatives or advance drug-policy reform. Grants will be made on an ongoing basis until funding is exhausted. The approximate allocation in total funding is $200,000. Proposals are due on the first business day of the month.
Complete program guidelines and application materials are available at the Drug Policy Alliance Web site.
