Boosting local substance abuse prevention efforts throughout Rhode Island, the state's Congressional Delegation today announced $1,122,062 in grants from the Drug-Free Communities Support Program (DFC). The funding is used to strengthen partnerships among community organizations, parents, youth, schools, health care and business professionals, and law enforcement. These coalitions work to create conditions within their communities that reduce the prevalence of drugs and help youth make decisions that keep them healthy and safe.

"Effective prevention brings together parents, teachers, coaches, and all members of the community to support young people in every aspect of their lives," said U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline. "That's why the work of our state's local drug prevention coalitions is so important. We are proud that these organizations are receiving federal resources to support their efforts to provide education and healthy alternatives for Rhode Island children."
