Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: Drug Free Communities Support Program
The Drug Free Communities (DFC) Support Program has two goals: (1) 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 use among youth. (2) Reduce substance use 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.
Amount: Up to $125,000 per year for 5 years. An expected 180 awards will be made.
Eligibility: Coalitions that meet guidelines in the eligibility table of the Request for Proposals. Coalitions must fall into one of the following three categories: (1) coalition that has never received a DFC grant; (2) coalition that previously received a DFC grant, but experienced a lapse in funding; or (3) coalition that has concluded the first five-year funding cycle and is applying for a second five-year funding cycle (Year 6).
