DFC New Applicant Workshop

The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), will host two applicant training sessions for FY 2021 to ensure community coalitions are well equipped to submit applications to both the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program and the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, Community Based Coalition Enhancement of Grants to Address Local Drug Crises (CARA Local Drug Crisis) Program.

Community coalitions interested in applying to the DFC and CARA programs in FY 2021 are strongly encouraged to attend the following applicant training sessions:

  • CARA Local Drug Crisis Program: On February 5, 2021 at 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST, ONDCP and CDC will host a full applicant training session for the CARA Local Drug Crisis Program’s Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). This applicant training session will include a pre-recorded video followed by “live” Q&A session. Participants are encouraged to have carefully reviewed the NOFO prior to attending the workshop.
  • Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program: On February 5, 2021, from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EST, ONDCP and CDC will host a virtual applicant training session on the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program’s Statutory Eligibility Requirements. On NOFO will be released in the next few months. A full applicant training session will take place after the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is released. This applicant training session will include a pre-recorded video followed by “live” Q&A session.
