DFC Grant or Drug Free Communities Grant AlcoholEdu for High School

The DFC Grant is a collaborative initiative, sponsored by ONDCP, in partnership with SAMHSA, which works to achieve two goals: 


  • Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private non-profit agencies, and Federal, State, local, and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth. For the purposes of this RFA, “youth” is defined as individuals 18 years of age and younger.
  • Reduce substance use among youth and, over time, reduce substance abuse among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse.
