Violence and opioid prevention Small Grant Program

The City of West Allis, through the Health Department, will provide resources to local community groups, organizations, and businesses to support community-generated violence and opioid prevention activities. The goal of the Violence and Opioid Prevention Small Grant Program is to reduce funding barriers for community groups, organizations, and businesses to carry out prevention activities and support local violence and opioid prevention and reduction priorities.

The West Allis Violence and Opioid Prevention Small Grant Program can award up to $10,000 per community group, organization or business project.  High impact proposals and/or projects including two or more agencies may be considered for additional funding based on sustainability of project and funding available.  

For guaranteed consideration, applications must be submitted by January 15, 2021 at 11:59pm. All applications received after January 15, 2021 will be considered on a first come, first serve basis if funds are available and disbursed on rolling basis.
