The Fiscal Year 2017 Drug-Free Community (DFC) Funding Opportunity Announcement is now available online, along with pre-application workshops to help you submit the application in full by the deadline.
Applicants can either be coalitions who have never received DFC funding (Year 1) or current recipients applying for a second cycle of five years of funding (Year 6) or former recipients who experienced a lapse in funding during a five-year cycle.
DFC Support Program is a federal grant program that provides funding to community-based coalitions that organize to prevent youth substance use. Since the passage of the DFC Act in 1997, the DFC Program has funded more than 2,000 coalitions and currently mobilizes nearly 9,000 community volunteers across the country. The philosophy behind the DFC Program is that local drug problems require local solutions.
Coalitions who have never received DFC funding can apply using this application and coalitions who have received DFC funding in the past should use this application. More information about the application is available on the ONDCP website.
