Examples of eligible activities include sponsoring a speaker from the addiction field for a specific audience; holding a workshop that focuses on the spiritual aspects of recovery; providing access to peer support groups, workshops and other support services; and hosting awareness, education or prevention activities.

The Helping Atlantans Manage Substance Abuse program wants grant proposals to be brief but specific and include details about the agency seeking the grant, the goal of the activity, statements on experience relevant to the program and how it fits the agency mission, and such program information as staffing, budget and timeline.

The post-activity report must include an evaluation of the program, its final budget, the challenges in its planning, a success story and details about participants.

Proposals are due to HAMSA coordinator Eric Miller by email at emiller@jfcs-atlanta.org by 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 19. Call Miller at 770-677-9318 for more information.

Finalists will be notified by Jan. 5.
