YOR California Request for Applications

YOR California is seeking applicants who can demonstrate their ability to successfully address YOR California’s goals and objectives, as outlined in the Request for Applications (RFA). Applicants will expand outreach, capacity, and direct services for youth misusing opioids and/or stimulants, especially those with opioid use and/or stimulant use disorders (OUD/StUDs).

The framework is based on the experience, accomplishments, and lessons learned from previous YOR California grantees and activities. It combines funding for direct services, peer-to-peer learning through learning collaboratives, and technical assistance to support grantee efforts. These grants are designed to foster the coordination and strengthening partnerships between agencies that touch youth.

YOR California encourages organizations to apply for this opportunity to infuse innovations and collaboration into efforts to significantly improve future youth services!
