Drug Free Communities Support Program: The Executive Office of the President, Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) are accepting applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Drug Free Communities Support Program (DFC) grants. The purpose of the DFC Program is to establish and strengthen collaboration to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth. DFC 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. DFC grantees are required to work toward these two goals as the primary focus of their Federally-funded effort. The DFC Program was created by the Drug Free Communities Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-20), reauthorized through the Drug Free Communities Reauthorization Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-82), and reauthorized again through the Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-469). The latest reauthorization extended the program for an additional five years until 2012. This announcement addresses Healthy People 2020 Substance Abuse Topic Area HP 2020-40. Since 1998, ONDCP has awarded approximately 1,750 DFC grants, with an estimated 75 new awards expected in FY 2011. Grants have been awarded to communities from every region in the nation and include rural, urban, suburban, and tribal communities.

Statutory Eligibility Requirements, written into the DFC Act, are inherent in the DFC Program. (See Table 2: Statutory Eligibility Requirements of this RFA). Please read the Statutory Eligibility Requirements carefully and provide the information necessary to meet the requirements in Attachments 1-8 of your application. Failure to meet any single eligibility requirement will cause the application to be deemed ineligible, and the application will not move forward to Peer Review.

No new materials or information may be added to the original application after it has been submitted. Final authority lies with the DFC Administrator to determine the eligibility of an application. All DFC applications will be jointly screened by ONDCP and SAMHSA to determine whether each applicant meets all the DFC Program eligibility requirements contained in Table 2. In addition, the non-profit status of the grantee organization will be verified along with its ability to fiscally manage Federal funds. Applications submitted by eligible coalitions that demonstrate they meet all requirements will then be scored through a Peer Review process according to the evaluation criteria described in Part V of this RFA, Application Review Information. In this RFA, Table 2: Statutory Eligibility Requirements contains a summary of the Statutory Eligibility Requirements and the minimum documentation applicants must provide to meet the eligibility criteria. "Where to Document" section in the following table tell applicants where to include the required information in their applications (e.g., as an attachment, in the Project Narrative, in the Budget Narrative). Each year, DFC grantees must demonstrate compliance with all of the Statutory Eligibility Requirements to be considered for continued funding.
