The Executive Office of the President, Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and SAMHSA are accepting applications for Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program grants. By statute, the DFC Support Program has two goals:
- Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private non-profit agencies, as well as federal, state, local, and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth.
- Reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, reduce substance abuse among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse, and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse.
SAMHSA plans to issue 150 grants of up to $125,000 per year for up to 5 years.
