Politics & Advocacy
The Drug Policy Alliance will allocate roughly $750,000 during the 2012/2013 Promoting Policy Change (PPC) grant cycle. PPC seeks to broaden public support for drug policy reform and will fund organizations who have consistently demonstrated success utilizing strategic and innovative approaches to increase such support. Proposals we fund are those designed to educate the public and policymakers about the negative consequences of current local, state or national drug policies, to promote better awareness and understanding of alternatives to current drug policies, and to broaden understanding of the extent to which punitive prohibitionist policies are responsible for most drug-related problems. Promoting Policy Change is a fund that has a two-tier application process.

We require a letter of intent to initiate the relationship. The deadline for the letter is Thursday, April 26th, 2012 at midnight (eastern). All LOIs must be emailed to [email protected]. The letter should consist of a single page that includes your organization’s name and all contact information; IRS status; a brief description of how your proposal is aligned with DPA's priorities (as described at; the amount of your funding request; and the organization's specific drug policy goals and deliverables during the fiscal year covered.

If you are invited to apply following submission of your LOI, you will be notified on or about May 15th. The deadline for requested proposals is June 18th, 2012 by 8pm (eastern). Please note that being asked to apply is NOT a guarantee of an award being made. Awards will be made mid to late September.
