The Drug Policy Foundation
grants program continues under the auspices of the newly-merged Lindesmith
Center-Drug Policy Foundation. TLC-DPF will be distributing approximately
$1.5 million every year to drug policy reform efforts. The Grant
Program funds a wide range of organizations, including those that specialize
in criminal justice, drug policy, harm reduction, medical marijuana, methadone
maintenance, and syringe exchange.
TLC-DPF provides three types
of funding: project, general support, and technical assistance. Project
grants cover model programs, advocacy, and targeted public education.
Limited international funding is available. Additionally, TLC-DPF
has set aside funds specifically for state-level multi-issue drug policy
to read the most recent Grant Program guidelines (last updated August 1999).
The deadline for the next round of TLC-DPF grants is October 1, 2000.
A hardcopy of the grant guidelines can be requested by sending e-mail to
[email protected] TLC-DPF is always interested in receiving feedback
from potential and current grantees.
