COPHR Round 2

Funding Opportunity: California Overdose Prevention and Harm Reduction Initiative, Round 2

The Center at Sierra Health Foundation, in partnership with the California Department of Public Health, is pleased to announce a second round of funding through the California Overdose Prevention and Harm Reduction Initiative (COPHRI). Funded partners will promote the health and safety of people who use drugs by supporting a range of harm reduction services operated by state- and locally-authorized syringe services programs (SSPs) throughout the State of California. This funding opportunity is available to SSPs that were not previously awarded funding through COPHRI or the California Harm Reduction Initiative (CHRI) supported by the California Department of Public Health through the National Harm Reduction Coalition (NHRC). The Center anticipates approving approximately 35 awards of up to $570,000 each for the period May 1, 2024 to June 30, 2027. Applications are due by May 20, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. (PST).
