CONGRESSWOMAN EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON ANNOUNCES GRANT FOR THE GREATER DALLAS COUNCIL ON ALCOHOL & DRUG ABUSE

Washington, DC – (Thursday, September 1, 2011)– Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson congratulates the Greater Dallas Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse on receiving the Office of National Drug Policy’s (ONDCP) Drug Free Communities (DFC) Support Program grant in the amount of $125,000. 

“The Drug Free Communities program has already proven to be an effective tool in reducing substance abuse, and I am delighted to now bring the backing of the Federal government to aid local organizations throughout Dallas in its mission,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “Prevention is the key to success in the war against drugs, and I fully support any program that will provide our children with the necessary tools to make more informed decisions about their future.”

Under the premise that local problems need local solutions, the DCF program is designed to support communities as they mobilize individuals and organizations to reduce youth substance abuse. 

The DCF program is directed by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, in partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
