How to apply

Step 1: Get your application ready

You can now start working on your application. The below document outlines the questions you will be asked in the application form. You will need to provide information about:

  • Your community
  • The partnerships in your team (if you already have partners)
  • How you’ve engaged with your community and;
  • If already identified - what the specific alcohol or other drug (AOD) problem is that you are wishing to address

Your application should include:

  • Information about the Lead Organisation (contact details) and – if you already have established partners – information about the other organisations you are working with.
  • Local data or statistics about the make-up of your community and – if you have already identified it - why you have chosen to focus on a particular issue (e.g. prevention of crystal methamphetamine – ‘Ice’) or a particular section of your community (e.g. young people).
  • How your team will operate (if you have existing partners), and how you are committed to developing an LDAT Community Action Plan. If you already have an existing partnership, you may also outline previous experience you have had in working together.
  • If you have completed community consultation or engagement, details of this activity and what you have found about your community. 

Note: It is essential that LDATs are committed to community input in their work. LDATs can request funding to conduct this activity as part of finalising their LDAT Community Action Plan.
