The SEA Fund awards grants to organizations with programs that support healthy alternatives to substance use

The City of Boulder’s Substance Education and Awareness Fund (SEA) aims to provide widespread education about the risks of substance use and abuse and help reduce substance use among youth and other community members.

The SEA Fund awards grants to organizations with programs that support healthy alternatives to substance use, create awareness of substance use risks and focus on prevention. Through collaboration with Boulder County Community Services, SEA Fund grantees participate in skill-share and training programs that help increase capacity for substance use prevention.

This year, the Housing and Human Services Department will award an anticipated $450,000 to qualified organizations through a competitive application process. Organizations that serve and are led by youth, historically excluded populations and people experiencing disproportionate risks for substance use are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2021 and must be submitted electronically using the e-CImpact grant management system. No paper or late applications will be accepted. For more information and to download the RFP and apply, visit the city’s website.
