Understanding the DFC Program

The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) program is a federal initiative designed to provide communities with funding to prevent youth substance use. It is grounded in the philosophy that local community coalitions are key to changing public attitudes and behaviors regarding substance abuse. The DFC grant supports our local efforts to reduce substance abuse among young people by fostering a community environment that promotes healthy, drug-free lifestyles.

Community Mobilization: With these funds, we can further engage various sectors of our community—including schools, businesses, law enforcement, and families—in a unified approach to prevent substance abuse.
