Youth Grants Program: Alcohol and Other Drugs

Alcohol and Other Drugs Youth Grants Program 2021–22

The Northern Territory Government (NTG) facilitates the strategic policy and planning agenda for alcohol and other drugs in the Northern Territory in partnership with health services, non-government organisations and consumers. This grant round aims to minimise harm associated with the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, including volatile substances, through a range of prevention, education and community action initiatives.

Funding is available up to $20,000 for individual projects/initiatives.

The area of focus for the 2021-22 funding:

  • Collaborative community projects that provide opportunities for young people to prevent the misuse of alcohol and other drugs and focus on healing and strengthening connection to culture.

Applications need to incorporate the focus area, need to demonstrate activities which are consistent with the National Drug Strategy 2017-2026 and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Drug Strategy 2014-2019. Projects/initiatives must be specifically for the Northern Territory.

Applications are open through the GrantsNT website, from Monday 6 September and close Friday 1 October 2021.

When are applications due?

Applications must be submitted by 3pm by Friday 1 October 2021. Late applications will not be accepted.

How are applications assessed?

An evaluation panel will assess and discuss each application received and will consider the following factors:

  • How the project or activity will benefit our community’s youth.
  • How the project or activity provides new or enhanced opportunities for young people to prevent the misuse of alcohol and other drugs.
  • How the project or activity will offer a focus on healing and strengthening connection to culture.
  • The project or activity is supported within the community.
  • The project demonstrates activities which are consistent with the National Drug Strategy 2017-2026, and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Drug Strategy 2014-2019.
  • Projects/initiatives must be specifically for the Northern Territory.
  • Previous successful delivery and reporting of funded projects.

You will be notified of the outcome of the application within four weeks of the closing date. The evaluation panel may decide to partially fund a project/activity, depending on the content and quality of the application received.

A failure to receive funding does not necessarily mean your application or project is not worthwhile. There is a high demand across the Northern Territory for grant funding and this means that some may miss out.

If your application is successful

Successful applicants will be required to sign a letter grant agreement between the organisation and NT Health. Successful applicants will be required to acknowledge the support of the NTG through the use of the NTG logo on all promotional materials e.g. promotional advertisements, press releases, signage at events and/or other material as appropriate. A digital copy of the logo can be supplied on request.

Evaluation

At the end of your project, we will require a report on your successes and challenges, along with photos of the work you’ve done and the outcomes. We want to hear about what didn’t work as planned, what you would do differently and any learnings from doing the project.

Reporting

Successful applicants will be required to submit an Alcohol and Other Drugs Youth Grants Program 2021-22 acquittal report within three months of the project’s completion.
