Scaling Prevention

The Prevention Network has teamed up with OrganizingTogether (OT) Consultancy Group to implement the Michigan Data to Action (MODA) project funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service’s Injury & Violence Prevention Section and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to scale drug overdose prevention programming across Michigan.

The Prevention Network is available to help support agencies to navigate the application process and the applications are due in mid-May. The funding opportunity will award mini-grants to local groups monthly in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $40,000. The mini-grant process is being developed and will be awarded monthly. Prevention Network intends to support any organization doing overdose prevention related work in the state of Michigan.

OT-Consultants Charla M. Burnett, Michael J. Cole, and Katie Vanhorn helped design a research-based organizational assessment with the Prevention Network Team, Hawra Ahmad and Nadia Ashtari, and is helping to coach overdose prevention organizations in scaling essential prevention programing.

The organizational capacity assessment (OCA) will take place from May 18th – June 5th, 2020.

Essential research-based methods will be offered on the #OTNetwork for overdose prevention programming and our full course curriculum will be offered for free to members. Charla M. Burnett is also developing a mapping dashboard for organizational spatial analysis.

In partnership with Uno Deuce Multimedia, OT-Consultants are also advising on the several focus group methodologies in prevention responses to COVID-19 for the development of a mini-documentary and educational video series.
