The NGOTGP aims to increase treatment places and improve service outcomes and quality, as well as reduce drug-related harm to individuals, families and communities.

Organisations currently allocated funding

Organisations funded under NGOTGP provide the following services:

  • outpatient counselling
  • outreach support
  • peer support
  • home detoxification
  • therapeutic communities and
  • rehabilitation.

Funding rounds

In 2011, through a competitive funding process, the department invited the alcohol and drugs sector to submit applications for funding of proposals that promote and support drug and alcohol treatment services.

Guidelines for the most recent funding round (2011)

It is expected that the department will release the next funding round for the NGOTGP, beyond 2015, at the end of 2014.

Additionally, work will soon commence with alcohol and other drug peak bodies to help develop the capacity of the sector to participate in grants processes, with a focus on strengthening capacity in the preparation of grant applications and in meeting obligations under funding agreements.
