Cortland County has announced that it is looking for proposals by organizations within the county who work on addressing treatment and prevention of opioid and related substance use.
The county is asking for proposals to show how the organization will address prevention, harm reduction, and/or treatment for residents within the county. The proposal should also include a focus on the county population with the greatest risk.
Organizations within the county, including non-profit organizations, will have the opportunity to submit a one-time request for funds to be used for the purpose of substance use prevention and treatment. All proposals will be accepted until 4:30pm on October 2nd.
Information that should be included in the proposal are: contact information, what the funding will be used for, the perceived impact of the project, how it will benefit the community, amount being requested, mention of other grants available for the project, and if you’ve already applied for other grants on the project.
The Cortland County Opioid Settlement Fund Committee will review each proposal and those with an acceptable proposal will receive a phone call to schedule a meeting to present the proposal to the committee.
All proposals must be submitted to the Clerk of the Legislature/Public Information Officer, Savannah Hempstead at 60 Central Ave, Room 306, Cortland, or via email at SHempstead@Cortland-Co.org.
