Podcast Episode 30: Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Steps for Success

In today’s episode we will be talking about leading a DFC coalition, writing for years 1-5 and for 6-10, and a proven process that builds buy-in and sustainability right from the beginning.


The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) program has been a central, bi-partisan component of our nation’s demand reduction strategy since its passage in 1998. The consistent and steady growth of the program from $10 million in 1998 to $100 million in 2019 and the number of grantees (from 92 original grantees to more than 2,000 grantees) is a testament to the program’s popularity. The premise of the DFC program is simple – that communities around the country must be organized and equipped to deal with their individual substance misuse problems in a comprehensive and coordinated manner.
