Youth Opioid Prevention Grant

The Youth Opioid Prevention Grant Program (YOPGP) supports efforts in Oregon City to discourage or prevent youths within our community from the misuse of opioids and prevent or reduce overdose deaths or other opioid-related harms through evidence-based or evidence-informed programs or strategies, which will improve our community’s overall quality of life by investing in programs that focus directly on our youth. 

Grant Amount 

The Oregon City Budget Committee earmarked $40,000 each year for the 2023-2025 biennium budget for a Youth Opioid Prevention Grant Program. The City will distribute a total of up to $40,000 in awards, with a maximum up to $20,000 per grant award for the 2023-24 grant period.
