Applications open for Local Drug Action Team program funding

Date posted: 27 June 2017

Applications are now open for the next round of funding opportunities for the Local Drug Action Team (LDAT) program.

This innovative, national program is encouraging all community groups and organisations to consider the opportunities of forming partnerships as part of the LDAT program, which seeks to reduce harms from alcohol and other drug use. The program focuses on identifying, developing and delivering local solutions to local drug and alcohol issues with support and resources from the Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF).

Over the next three years, it is hoped that up to 220 LDATs will be established across the country to engage and support community organisations to work together to prevent and reduce the harms of alcohol and other drugs in their regions. LDATs might include partnerships between local government, local community groups, local traders/business associations, police, schools, and local not-for-profit organisations. All LDATs will be supported to develop a Community Action Plan and will be eligible to access funding of up to $40,000 per annum to put these plans into action.

The LDAT program is an initiative under the Australian Government’s four year, $298 million additional investment to reduce the harms that drugs (including ice) and alcohol are having across the country.

Applications for this round of funding can be submitted until 14 July 2017.

For further details about the program, community support material, and application forms please see the ADF website or click on the links below.
