This program, established by the Drug-Free Communities Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-20), awards grants to community coalitions for amounts up to $100,000 through a competitive grant award process. On December 14, 2001, Public Law 107-82 reauthorized the program for 5 years. The focus of the program is on community coalitions that have been in existence for a minimum of 6 months, coalitions that have 5-year strategic plans aimed at reducing substance abuse among youth, and over time, among adults, and coalitions that have provided an equal match for the funds that they seek. These community coalitions are to collaborate with entities in the community including government agencies to coordinate and strengthen efforts to reduce substance abuse. The program aims to disseminate timely state-of-the-art information on practices and initiatives that have proven to be effective in reducing substance abuse.
