WHAT DOES IT FUND? The Grants awarded through the DFC Support Program are intended to support established community-based youth substance use prevention coalitions capable of effective community level change. Coalitions receiving funds are expected to work with leaders in their communities to identify and address local youth substance use problems and create sustainable community-level change through the use of the Seven Strategies for Community Level Change. Click here for more information. 
WHO'S ELIGIBLE? Eligibility applicants are community-based coalitions addressing youth substance use that have previously received a DFC grant but experienced a lapse in funding or have concluded the first five-year funding cycle and are applying for a second five-year funding cycle. The coalition must consist of one or more representatives from each of the required 12 sectors: youth (18 or younger); parent; business; media; school; youth-serving organization; law enforcement; religious/fraternal organization; civic/volunteer groups; healthcare professional or organization; state, local, or tribal government agency with expertise in the field of substance abuse; and another organization involved in reducing substance abuse.
