Coalitions: This is new for FY 2013: All current grantees and potential Drug Free Communities applicants must complete a System for Award Management (SAM) registration. If you do not create an account within SAM, you cannot apply for DFC or any other Federal funds, and your application will be ineligible.
To establish a SAM account, click here and follow the directions as prompted. It can take 48-72 hours for a SAM registration to be validated, so do not wait until the application is due. Sign up for SAM today.
For more information, contact SAM Customer Service at www.fsd.gov 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST. They also can be reached at 866-606-8220 from the United States and 334-206-7828 internationally.
