Legislative Alert from Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America

February 24, 2011

The $9.5 million cut to the DFC program contained in the House-passed Continuing Resolution (CR) does impact the current solicitation that is due on March 18, 2011.

At the $85.5 million level contained in the House-passed CR, there would only be enough money for seven new grants this grant cycle, which the field is currently writing applications for now. In order for there to be enough funds to support the 75 new grants that the field has expected, funding for the program must be restored to the FY 2010 appropriated level of $95 million in the FY 2011 CR.

It is critical that the field respond en masse to this alert to ensure that funding for the DFC program is restored to $95 million in the FY 2011 CR.

Both the House and the Senate need to hear from as many constituents as possible that funding for the DFC program must be restored in the FY 2011 CR to ensure there is money to fund 75 new grants this year. Please ask your members of Congress to support the FY 2010 appropriated level of $95 million for the DFC program in the FY 2011CR.

Using CADCA’s CapWiz system, fax the sample letter to the members of your congressional delegation to ask them to fund the DFC program at a level of $95 million for FY 2011. YOUR FAX IS CRITICAL.  The more letters your members of Congress receive on this issue, the more likely they are to reject the House-passed level of $85.5 million for the DFC program.

Please fax the members of your congressional delegation IMMEDIATELY. CADCA will continue to monitor the DFC program as the appropriations process moves forward and will alert you when further action must be taken.

CADCA’s fax system allows you to automatically fax CADCA’s sample letter on this issue to your legislators from CADCA’s website.  To send faxes to your legislators, go to

If you would like to personalize your letter with examples from your community, please email for a MS Word version of the sample letter.
