Funding for B.C. Treatment & Recovery Service Operators

July 31, 2020. Article by: Government of B.C.

In the midst of dual public health emergencies – the overdose crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic – people are losing their lives at an overwhelming rate to overdose.

More than ever, people who use substances must be able to access treatment and recovery services, if and when they need them.

Treatment and recovery services play an essential role in providing care for many people who want to stop using drugs or stay safer when using substances. These services help save lives.

To help support the delivery of bed-based licensed and registered treatment and recovery services across the province, The Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions has funding up to $45,000 per grant available for operators who have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19.

Applications for the COVID-19 Support Grant Program will be accepted from July 28- August 27, 2020.
