September 7, 2016

Last week the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), Michael Botticelli, announced $85.9 million in grants for 698 Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Programs across the country.  The grants will provide funding to local community coalitions for preventing youth substance use including prescription drugs, marijuana, tobacco, and alcohol. DFC’s 2014 National Evaluation Report showed a significant decrease in past-30-day use of prescription drugs among youth in DFC communities. The report also found a significant decrease in past-30-day use between the first and most recent data reports for alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use among middle school and high school youth in DFC communities.
