Funding and grants

The Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF) allocates funding to community groups in NSW through the Community Engagement and Action Program (CEAP) that’s funded by the NSW Government. At the core of this program are the Community Drug Action Teams (CDATs). These volunteer-led teams operate across the state and work together to reduce alcohol and other drug harms in their local communities.

The CEAP grants program provides financial support to CDATs by helping the teams deliver projects and reimbursing them for the costs associated with CDAT operations.
