Description

The purpose of the NCI is to provide education, training, and technical assistance for coalition leaders and community teams, with an emphasis on the development of coalitions serving economically disadvantaged areas. The NCI will disseminate evaluation tools, mechanisms, and measures to better assess and document coalition performance measures and outcomes and bridge the gap between research and practice by translating knowledge from research into practical application.

Eligibility

Eligibility for this grant is limited to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA). Section 4 of Public Law 107-82, as amended by Public Law 109-469 (21 U.S.C. 1521 note), provides that the Director of ONDCP shall make a directed grant to CADCA to provide for the continuation of the NCI.

CADCA is in a unique position to conduct the activities of the NCI and meet the objectives of this grant. CADCA is a national organization that exists to support local community anti-drug coalitions in the United States and abroad. For more than 23 years, coalitions and coalition leadership have turned to CADCA to obtain the assistance they need to implement, operate, and sustain effective local community anti-drug strategies. The NCI will take advantage of the resources of multiple agencies located throughout the federal, state and local governments, philanthropies, and universities to bring the best available knowledge, information, and technology to local community coalitions working to prevent and reduce drug use among youth.
