Request for Proposals - Reno County/Hutchinson Fights Addiction Fund Grant Program
To date, Reno County and Hutchinson have received approximately $240,000 through the Kansas State Attorney General’s Office for their respective Kansas Fights Addictions Funds.
In order to best meet the needs of our community, the Reno County Health Department has convened a Opioid Settlement Funds Advisory Oversight Committee, made up of a variety of community stakeholders who have looked at the data available for Reno County, identified goals and measures of success for the City of Hutchinson and Reno County as a whole as well as identified the abatement strategies that should be prioritized. This committee is tasked with making sure that the Reno County Fights Addiction Fund is spent sustainably and in ways which may boost efforts currently happening within Reno County.
The Opioid Settlement Funds Advisory Oversight Committee is requesting proposals for grant funding from the Kansas Fights Addictions Fund.
To be eligible, proposals must come from organizations that are exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) and serve Reno County, Kansas. Special purpose units of government may apply for support of innovative projects. Community groups who do not have a 501(c)(3) status may apply for grant awards if another tax-exempt organization acts as a fiscal sponsor. Grant proposals from individuals or non-qualifying organizations will not be considered.
Proposals will be accepted between September 11 and October 16, 2023. Send completed proposals to email@example.com by October 16, 2023, at 4:30 p.m. Contact Candace Davidson with any questions, 620-259-8463.
