The Executive Office of the President, Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) announce the availability of funds for Drug Free Communities Support Program (DFCSP) grants.  DFCSP is a collaborative initiative sponsored by ONDCP and SAMHSA in order to:
  • reduce substance abuse among youth;

  • help community coalitions strengthen collaboration;

  • enhance intergovernmental collaboration, cooperation and coordination;

  • enable communities to conduct data-driven, research-based prevention planning, and

  • provide communities with technical assistance, guidance, and financial support. 

ONDCP and SAMHSA invite eligible applicants to review this announcement for DFCSP grants. Eligibility information is provided in Section III and award information is provided in Section II.

 


Eligible Applicants

DFCSP grant funds are intended to support community-based coalitions.  According to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA), "A coalition is a formal arrangement for cooperation and collaboration between groups or sectors of a community, in which each group retains its identity but all agree to work together toward a common goal of building a safe, healthy, and drug-free community." 

To be eligible for a DFCSP grant, a coalition must meet the requirements detailed in Part III of  the full-length Request for Applications.

Statewide substance abuse prevention coalitions may apply for a DCSP grant, provided they meet all the criteria specified above.

No coalition or fiscal agent may submit more than one application under this funding announcement.  Coalitions may not serve the same geographic area, unless both coalitions have clearly described their plans for collaboration in their applications and each coalition has independently met the above requirements.

 


Additional Information

Approximately $70 million will be available for approximately 700 DFCSP awards, including new DFCSP awards as well as competing renewal awards.

The maximum allowable award for new DFCSP grants is $100,000 per year in total costs (direct and indirect).  The maximum allowable award for competing renewal DFCSP awards is $100,000 per year in total costs (direct and indirect). 

Cost-sharing is required. Please see RFA announcement for further information.
