National Rally for Recovery Application

Want to be the Host for the National Rally for Recovery Hub Event in 2019?

This bid application is for one ARCO affiliate to host the National Rally for Recovery Hub Event to be held on September 21, 2019 (the third Saturday in September). It will serve as the culmination of the many activities that take place during Recovery Month in September around the nation and worldwide.

Every September, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) promotes National Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use issues and celebrate communities. The Faces & Voices of Recovery Program & Outreach Committee selects the national hub site.  The Committee considers factors such as geographic region, accessibility, organizational capacity, event history, and ability to raise funds through sponsorships.

Please fill out the information below as thoroughly as possible and include any past press, images or links to previous rallies or events your RCO has held.

If selected, your RCO Recovery Month Rally will be the Nationally Recognized Recovery Month Hub. This includes significant national exposure, possible SAMHSA presence with filming opportunities for your location, social media marketing with Faces & Voices of Recovery and listed on the Faces & Voices of Recovery website.

Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018. The host location candidate will be contacted by Faces & Voices staff for further discussion by December 15, 2018. Planning for the event will begin in January 2019.
