JBS International has released a funding opportunity aimed at addressing critical needs in crime victim, behavioral health, and substance misuse services through the Supporting Children, Youth, and Families Affected by the Drug Crisis: Recruiting and Developing Peer Recovery Coaches (PRC) initiative.
The purpose of the PRC initiative is to recruit, train, deploy, and support paid, family-centered PRCs to assist a person seeking recovery from substance misuse. The initiative provides focused and intentional support to improve the well-being of children and youth who have experienced victimization as a result of substance use, and offers assistance to their broader family unit.
Successful applicants will implement a workforce development model that supports the recruitment, training, certification, and deployment of paid PRCs. The applicant will establish a family-centered PRC model that supports those affected by the family member’s or caregiver’s substance use.
JBS International seeks applications from a diverse range of entities that specialize in substance use treatment, provide direct support services to children, youth, and adolescents who are crime victims affected by the Nation’s drug crisis, and offer assistance to their families.
This initiative will fund up to 10 subawards of up to $200,000 each. Each subaward will be for up to a 28-month period of performance.
