The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) continues to accept applications for the Addictions Recovery Peer Support Fund.

The Addictions Recovery Peer Support Fund helps eligible organizations provide their own peer support programs, groups, and/or activities specific to addictions recovery and harm reduction approaches. There are two funding options and a total of $230,000 in funding available.

The training funding option has a total of $50,000 available to assist organizations in providing training to individuals to offer addictions recovery peer support programs such as Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) Recovery and Wellbriety.

The basic funding option has a total of $180,000 available for primary activities such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Wellbriety, healing circles and community gatherings with recovery speakers. Funding may cover the costs for refreshments, meeting spaces and program participant materials.
