NEW! SAMHSA Drug-Free Communities Support Program/New

Due Date: 
Monday, July 8, 2019

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is seeking applications for its Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program. Eligible applicants will be community-based coalitions addressing youth substance use that have never received DFC funding. The program’s first goal is to establish and strengthen partnerships among private, nonprofit organizations and public agencies at the federal, state, local, and tribal levels. The second goal is to reduce substance abuse among youth and ultimately among adults by addressing the community-level factors that increase the risk of substance abuse and to promote factors that minimize risk.

SAMHSA expects to award 150 grants for up to $125,000 per year for up to five years. Applications are due on Monday, July 8, 2019
