Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, states, and tribal governments for mentoring services for youth affected by substance abuse. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended for the implementation and delivery of mentoring services to youth who are currently misusing or dependent on drugs (including opioids, stimulants, and other licit or illicit drugs), youth at risk for misusing drugs, and youth with family members who are currently misusing or dependent on drugs.

This program supports the implementation and delivery of mentoring services to youth who are currently misusing or dependent on drugs (including opioids, stimulants, and other licit or illicit drugs), youth at risk for misusing drugs, and youth with family members who are currently misusing or dependent on drugs. Mentoring services can be one-to-one, group, peer, or a combination. Applicants must initiate mentoring services to youth who are 17 years old or younger at the time of admission to the program. Mentors must be an adult (age 18 or older), or in cases where peer mentoring models are being implemented, an older peer and under adult supervision. Funding is encouraged to support new mentoring matches, but can also support existing mentoring matches through program completion. However, the applicant must specify the number of new and existing matches to be served during the project period.

There are two categories under this solicitation:

  • Category 1: Mentoring Strategies for Youth Affected by Opioid and Other Drug Misuse (Project Sites). The focus of this category is to provide mentoring services as part of a prevention, treatment, and supportive approach for those youth impacted by drug use.
  • Category 2: Statewide and Regional Mentoring Strategies for Youth Affected by Opioid and Other Drug Misuse. This category supports a broad-based approach to building mentoring program capacity in targeted regions throughout the country to help youth impacted by drug use.

OJJDP is interested in supporting statewide or regional approaches to expanding mentoring services for these targeted youth. This may include states or statewide organizations providing subgrants to mentoring organizations in particular regions (especially rural communities), federally recognized tribes supporting mentoring programs, and national mentoring organizations funding active chapters or subrecipients in areas (especially rural communities) with demonstrated high levels of drug use.
