$12.5M Available in Competing Continuation Grants for Current or Former DFC Coalitions

On March 26, 2021, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) under the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) program; $12.5M in funds is available for up to 100 coalitions under competing continuation. Eligible applicants are community-based coalitions addressing youth substance use that have previously received a DFC grant but have experienced a lapse in funding or have concluded the first five-year funding cycle and are applying for a second five-year funding cycle (Years 6-10). Recipients are expected to work with leaders in their communities across sectors to identify and address local youth substance use problems and create sustainable community-level change through the implementation of evidence-based and practice-based strategies. Coalitions will receive up to $125,000 per year for up to five years.

Please note: On April 14, 2021, CDC posted revisions to provide clarification to the NOFO and the accompanying attachment. CDC also added a specific signature line in Attachment 1: Coalition Involvement Agreement (CIA) so that each Sector Representative can provide the required signature on the respective 12 CIA forms.
