The Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA), announced last week that it has awarded around $1 million in grant funds to support five nonprofit organizations in delivering Recovery Friendly Workplace programming. Makin’ It Happen was one of five local nonprofits to be awarded funds to deliver Recovery Friendly Workplace programming.

Recovery Friendly Workplace programs include: educating employers in evidence-based practices that reduce substance misuse in the workplace, creating work environments that are conducive to enabling persons in addiction and mental health recovery, training employees including specialized training for human resources personnel, raising public awareness and providing information that supports health and safety for employees, and promoting active community engagement that will assist in reducing the negative impact of unaddressed substance misuse and untreated mental health.
