Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Grants

Up to 15 Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Grants will be awarded to community anti-drug coalitions that assist the development of other groups and coalition leaders, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).


A total of $1.1 million is available for the grants; up to $75,000 will be awarded to each grantee over two years. “These grants will ensure that the most proven drug prevention strategies are spread across the country,” said U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. 


The grants will be awarded to current recipients of Drug Free Communities (DFC) grants “so they may serve as mentors to newly formed and/or developing coalitions that have never received a DFC grant to increase their capacity to implement effective drug-prevention strategies in the communities they serve,” according to SAMHSA.


Application deadline is April 23, 2010. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.

Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Program

Grants of up to $75,000 are available to current Drug-Free Communities programs that can provide mentoring services to new or developing community anti-drug coalitions.


The Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Program will make 16 grants totaling approximately $1.2 million to established coalitions.


“The purpose of the DFC Mentoring Program is to provide grant funds to existing DFC grantees so that they may serve as Mentors to newly formed and/or developing coalitions that have never received a DFC grant,” according to the announcement. “Mentor grant funds should be used for the direct benefit of the Mentee Community/Coalition. Through the support of DFC mentoring funds, Mentor Coalitions are expected to share their expertise with non-grantee coalitions (Mentee Community/Coalition) and enable them to successfully compete for a DFC grant. Funding through this grant should support access for the Mentee Community/Coalition to the training and technical assistance necessary to help them form a community coalition and pursue a DFC grant.”


Application deadline is April 24. For more information, see the grant announcement online.
