The Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) invites Non-Government Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) organisations, who are funded by NSW Health to provide AOD treatment services in NSW, to apply for funding under the NGO Service Development Grant Program: Round 2. The program has been devised for eligible organisations to undertake short-term projects that will support increased service capacity in regard to access, equity and safety for people seeking and engaging in AOD treatment.
One-off grants of up to $60,000 ex GST for individual organisation projects and $100,000 ex GST for collaborative projects have been made available by the NSW Ministry of Health to support Non-Government AOD treatment services to focus on improving access and equity regarding a specific target population (Stream 1); and improve the safety while in, AOD treatment (Stream 2).
The total funding pool available is $475,000.
Project activities related to the two funding streams should be underpinned by seven principles of practice (see SDG 2020 Program Guidelines) which support AOD treatment services to deliver person-centred, safe and high-quality delivery of AOD treatment. Furthermore, these funding streams align with the NADA Capability Framework for AOD employees in the NSW specialist AOD treatment sector.
The NGO SDG Program is a collaborative project between NADA and the Ministry of Health. NADA will auspice the funds and administer the program, guided by a funding contract with the Ministry of Health.

While we can no longer gather in person for training, have you considered what training is available online?
Would a grant help you to upskill you and/or your colleagues?
The Online Training Grants program has been developed by NADA in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the physical-distancing rules preventing many traditional classroom-styled training from taking place, we have developed a funding program that will allow workers to continue upskilling online.
Just like our regular Workforce Development Grants, you can apply for an individual and/or group training grant that will be available to use for the next six months – May to October 2020.
