Ardmore Grants

What are State and Federal Competitive Grants?

The foundation funder posts an announcement online, or a government agency issues a Notice of Availability of Funding (NOFA) or Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). All of these announcements contain specific requirements that applicants must address in their applications.  Competitive funding is a process of proposal selection based on evaluating a reviewer or team of reviewers.  Funding is based on the merits of the application, and recipients are not pre-determined.  This type of grant is also known as discretionary funding because the awarding office has discretion in deciding which applicants to award.

The Ardmore office has been awarded the following state and federal competitive grants to provide community-based prevention services focused on at-risk communities.  Prevention services address the following priority substance use problems and associated risk factors:
