The Parker Gill Foundation, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, believes that a combination of prevention and recovery efforts is key to saving lives from overdose in Arkansas. The Parker Gill Foundation Grant Program gives housing, treatment, and recovery support grants to support individuals seeking recovery in Arkansas.

Recovery grants and funding will be provided to individuals in early recovery. Funding options include, but are not limited to the following:
Due to the purpose and mission of the Parker Gill Foundation, funding will not be provided for the following: Funds to settle debts of the individual in recovery; legal fees or court fees; utilities; rent other than for a recovery housing organization; or purchase of medications. The board reserves the right to deny funding for other reasons or services not listed in these guidelines.
Prevention and Recovery Efforts
When available, funding may be used to support prevention and recovery events held in Arkansas. This may include holiday parties for recovery housing organizations, recovery support groups and treatment centers.
How to Apply
To start the process, a representative of the treatment center, recovery housing organization, recovery community organization or the peer recovery specialist must complete the online application. Applications are accepted and approved on a weekly basis. Due to program funding, not all applications are approved. The Parker Gill Foundation makes every effort to use limited funds in the most responsible way.
Please note, no contributions will be made directly to individuals.
