Regional Suicide Prevention Coalition Grants

About the Application

The Oregon Alliance to Prevent Suicide (the Alliance), in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), is announcing one-time grants of up to $20,000 to build up infrastructure of our state’s regional suicide prevention coalitions. Strong applications will demonstrate: alignment with Oregon’s Suicide Prevention Framework (Framework); alignment with the Alliance’s focus on hope, help, and healing; connection to reducing health inequity; and strong rootedness in local community needs and strengths.

What’s a Coalition?

A regional suicide prevention coalition is made up of multiple local organizations who are working together with a shared region-specific focus on suicide prevention. Membership will most often include people with lived experience and local leaders from multiple sectors. Most coalitions are county-based.

Project Ideas

Creativity is encouraged! Please see Attachment 1 for Framework Pillars with a few examples of projects and how each fit within the Framework. Attachment 2 is a list of all Pathways found within the Framework for reference. This worksheet is not a required part of the application but meant to serve as a tool to help you figure out how your project fits the Framework – and will help you answer question 6 of the application.

Please find the application in a word document format to the right along with the attachments as a pdf.
