GOT OUTCOMES! The Pinnacle of Excellence

CADCA is now accepting applications for the 2017 GOT OUTCOMES! Coalition of Excellence Awards

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 11, 2017

The prestigious GOT OUTCOMES! Coalition of Excellence Awards, sponsored by CADCA’s National Coalition Institute, recognizes coalitions achieving contributions to positive changes in community-level outcomes.  These coalitions implement a comprehensive set of data driven strategies and interventions to target the unique and specific conditions contributing to substance use/abuse in their community. 

While an applicant’s ultimate goal is to win a GOT OUTCOMES! award, the application process is beneficial to coalitions. It creates an opportunity to practice and strengthen the important skill of effectively and concisely “making the case” for the coalition’s contribution to community-level outcomes. Strong candidates for one of these awards are skilled in data collection, evaluation and data-driven decision-making inclusive of the community.

We also strongly encourage coalitions interested in applying to contact CADCA directly by emailing or calling 1-800-54-CADCA, ext. 241. We can answer questions specific to your coalition that will help prepare you for a successful application.


GOT OUTCOMES! Applicant Webinar

On Thursday, June 8, 2017, CADCA will hold a GOT OUTCOMES! applicant webinar where we will walk through the application materials as a group.
