COMMUNITY groups, schools and sporting organisations are encouraged to apply for the third round of the Local Drug Action Team (LDAT) program.
The program aims to bring the community together to develop local plans and activities to prevent and reduce the harm being caused by drugs and alcohol.
Over the next three years, up to 220 LDATs will be established across the country to reduce the impact of drugs, with a strong focus on ice.
Successful applicants will initially receive $10,000 to help them to develop a local action plan. Once the plan is finalised, LDATs can apply to receive up to an additional $30,000 in their first year (and then $40,000 a year) to support delivery of local activities.
Any organisation with an interest in tackling drug and alcohol issues in their community is encouraged to apply.
Applications close February 19 and there will be further opportunities to be part of the program later this year and in 2019.
