Applications are open for funding for communities to develop Local Drug Action Teams (LDATs). The LDAT program is about building partnerships that focus on primary prevention work in the community. Grants of $10,000 are available to develop a new LDAT or implement activities. To receive the grant, the teams must first be awarded LDAT status. 

The members of an LDAT commit to working together as a team to promote social inclusion and to adopt community-driven, evidence-informed approaches that strengthen protective factors against AOD misuse. An LDAT could include representatives of local government, local community groups, local traders/business associations, police, schools, and local not-for-profit organisations.

Applications close: 14 July 2017

A second invitation-only grant round will open on 15 August for invited LDATs to apply for further funding of up to $40,000 (including the initial $10,000).
