Drug Free Communities Grant
The Health and Human Services Agency has released a Request for Application for the Drug-Free Communities Support grant. 75 grants will be awarded of up to $125,000. Deadline is March 18, 2011.
The purpose of this program is to establish and strengthen collaboration to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth. The funding is meant to achieve two major goals: Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private nonprofit agencies, and Federal, State, local, and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions to prevent and reduce substance use among youth and to 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.
