The Hanley Family Foundation Accepting Applications for Substance Abuse Programs

The Hanley Family Foundation supports organizations and programs that advance the prevention , diagnosis, and treatment of alcoholism, chemical dependency, and addictive behavior, including support for related research and education. The foundation accepts pre-proposals on an ongoing basis. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Grant amounts are determined on a project-by-project basis. The organization’s preference is to support operations whose primary focus is to help individuals to recover from, or avoid, substance use disorder. Due to the lack of treatment services, opportunities to support new or expanding programs that will allow more people to seek recovery are particularly attractive to the foundation.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: Eligible organizations must be located in the United States and tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3). Organizations must qualify as public charities as described in Section 509(a)(1), (2) or (3). Letters of inquiry and grant requests must be submitted online.

Due Date: There is no deadline for submitting a Letter of Inquiry, but the foundation’s fiscal year ends May 31, and it conducts two funding cycles each fiscal year. Grant applications received by March 31 will be decided on by May 31, and those received by September 30 will be decided on by November 30.
