Drug Free Communities Mentoring Program - 0 views

  •  
    The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program was created by the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-20). The DFC Mentoring (DFC-M) Program was established as a component of the DFC Support Program when the program was reauthorized in 2001 (Public Law 107-82, 115 Stat. 814). The DFC Mentoring Program was also included in the Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-469). The purpose of the DFC-M Program is to assist newly forming coalitions in becoming eligible to apply for DFC funding on their own. It is the intent of the DFC-M Program that, at the end of the Mentoring grant, each Mentee coalition will meet all of the statutory eligibility requirements of the DFC Support Program and be fully prepared to compete for a DFC grant on their own. Recipients will be expected to achieve this by meeting the following goals: 1. Strengthen the Mentee coalition's organizational structure. 2. Increase the Mentee coalition's leadership and community readiness to address youth substance use problems in the Mentee community. 3. Assist the Mentee coalition in working through a strategic planning process that will result in a comprehensive Action Plan.
