Drug Free Communities Support Mentoring Program: The Executive Office of the President, Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announce the availability of funds for new FY 2006 Drug Free Communities Support Mentoring Program (DFC Mentoring) grants. The purpose of the DFC Mentoring Program is to provide grant funds to existing DFC grantees (mentors) to support development and/or expansion of new community coalitions (mentees) that are focused on substance abuse prevention. The DFC Program, a collaborative initiative sponsored by ONDCP in partnership with SAMHSA, is designed to achieve two goals: . Reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, 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. Substances include, but are not limited to, narcotics, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, cannabis, inhalants, alcohol and tobacco, where their use is prohibited by Federal, State, or local law. DFC grants must focus on multiple drugs of abuse. When the term 'drug' or 'substance' is used in this announcement, it is intended to include all of the above substances.. Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, private nonprofit agencies, and Federal, State, local and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth.Congress signed the Drug-Free Communities Act (P.L. 105-20) into law on June 27, 1997. The Act provides financial assistance and support to community coalitions to carry out the mission of reducing substance abuse among the nations youth. On December 14, 2001, P.L. 107-82, 115 Stat. 814 (2001), reauthorized the program for 5 years. The community sites that have been awarded DFC grants represent a cross-section from every region in the nation and include rural, urban, suburban, and tribal communities. In FY 2005, 24 new DFC mentoring grants and 13 mentoring continuation grants were awarded. More information can be found on the DFC web site (www.dfc.samhsa.gov).
