See below. The application deadline is March 26, 2004. I hope this is helpful and please pass on to your friends and organizations who are hurting for funding to provide services to kids, and who this applies to. Good luck folks !

The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) have issued a Program Announcement for the fiscal year 2004 Drug-Free Communities Support Program.

The purpose of the program is to reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults.

Community coalitions whose members have worked together on substance abuse reduction initiatives for at least 6 months and that meet all eligibility requirements outlined in the program announcement are invited to apply. Coalitions may be umbrella coalitions serving multicounty areas, and statewide coalitions may apply provided that they meet all other eligibility requirements.

Approximately 180 grants of up to $100,000 each will be awarded to community coalitions that are working to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth.

Applications must be received by March 26, 2004.

Interested applicants may view the Program Announcement on the program’s Web site (<a href="http://ojjdp.ncjrs.org/dfcs">http://ojjdp.ncjrs.org/dfcs</a>).
