The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has announced a Call for Proposals for the 2014 DAPC Grants to provide funding support to NGOs in low- and middle-income countries. Proposed projects have to connect youth to the activities of the UNODC Youth Initiative. The grant has been issued with the support of the Drug Abuse Prevention Centre (DAPC) of Japan.
Grant funding under this Call for Proposals shall be provided to projects that:
- are focused on prevention on substance use. This is assessed on the basis of how well the project activities are in line with the International Standards on Drug Prevention and follow the evidence based practices for prevention work targeting youth presented in these standards.
- are targeting youth;
- support the active participation of youth in their communities;
- are initiated, planned, managed, implemented, monitored and/or evaluated by youth;
- connect youth to the activities of the UNODC Youth Initiative (www.unodc.org/youth), also through its visibility in social media.
Any grant awarded under this grants programme will be for a maximum of USD 10,000, but generally not under USD 5,000, to be paid typically in one instalment.

- projects concerned only or mainly with individual sponsorships for participation in workshops, seminars, conferences, congresses;
- projects concerned only or mainly with individual scholarships for studies or training courses;
