Prevention Training Scholarships 2021-2022
The Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery has identified funding to provide financial support for prevention partners to attend various conferences. These conferences provide training on prevention theory, strategic planning, coalition development, cultural competency, reducing health disparities, community organizing, and/or the Strategic Prevention Framework.
These conferences are open to current providers (CPWIs, CBOs) and Tribes for attendance. Requests will be reviewed with your Prevention System Manager and reviewed with other trainings and activities in your approved budgets.
Only registration costs can be covered by these scholarships. You will need to use other funds to cover expenses such as travel and per diem. Hereis a list of conferences that the DBHR prevention team can support registration costs: Washington State Prevention Summit; Communities That Care® (CTC); CADCA Mid-Year Training Institute; CADCA Boot camp, CADCA National Leadership Forum, National Prevention Network Conference, Society of Prevention Research Conference and Marijuana Prevention Research Symposium.
