New Program: Supporting Community Residential Substance Use Facilities and Shelters Serving Those Experiencing Homelessness
LTC+ Acting on Pandemic Learning Together is expanding to support organizations dedicated to caring for people experiencing homelessness or substance use. LTC Expanded is a collaboration between the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the newly amalgamated organization that brings together the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement and Canadian Patient Safety Institute, with partners from across the country.
Community residential substance use facilities, detoxification facilities and shelters serving those experiencing homelessness can join LTC Expanded. Organizations can receive support such as coaching, mentorship and up to $10,000 to contribute towards pandemic response plans. This funding can be used where the need is the greatest, including vaccine roll-out, staff time, harm reduction training/education or supplies, purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) and mental health training/support.
We are committed to ensuring the program expansion meets the needs of those participating. We will work with the teams who join in this first phase to co-create a longer-term program and a menu of virtual activities.
Organizations can apply to join LTC Expanded by completing this application form.
