The UNODC DAPC grants programme is launching a Call for Proposals with the aim of funding not-for-profit organisations working in the area of substance use prevention whose projects are aimed at implementing evidence-based substance use prevention programs for and with youth. Applicants from low- and middle-income countries are eligible for grant awards of USD 10,000 to USD 17,000.
Since 1994, UNODC has received a contribution from the Drug Abuse Prevention Centre (DAPC) of Japan to support drug prevention activities by non-governmental organisations in low and middle-income countries. Grants have been disbursed globally every year since. In 2012, the process was assigned to be managed by the Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation section in the Drugs Branch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). This project falls under the thematic programme of addressing health and human development vulnerabilities in the context of drugs and crime.
