ONDCP announces second round of funding for DFC program
The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) recently announced a second phase of grants for the fiscal year (FY) 2020 Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program. Approximately $24 million in continued funding will be allocated to 192 DFC grant recipients to address substance use prevention with youth across the county. This round of funding builds on the 340 continuation grants and nearly $42.5 million in funding that was announced last month. A third and final phase of funding is expected to be announced later this year. In addition, the DFC program's day-to-day management, effective October 1, 2020, is being performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
