Drug Free Communities

Preventing youth substance use is critical to ending the drug crisis in America. The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program is the nation’s leading effort to mobilize communities to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth. Created in 1997 by the Drug-Free Communities Act, directed by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and now administered by CDC, the DFC Program provides grants to community coalitions to strengthen the infrastructure among local partners to create and sustain a reduction in local youth substance use. ” –

Blair County Drug and Alcohol Program, Inc. has been fortunate enough to receive the DFC Grant for the next five (5) years. With these funds, our goals are:

  • To establish and strengthen collaboration among various sectors of a community working to prevent youth substance use
  • Work to reduce youth substance use rates in communities across Blair County
