This notice is to inform the public that the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends to award approximately $625,000 (total costs) per year for up to five years to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA). This is not a formal request for applications.

The Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) is uniquely qualified to carry out the activities of this program because the purpose of the program is to partner with a national organization that has special expertise and unique broad, national-level experience in working with community anti-drug coalitions. CADCA is the only national organization that annually provides training and technical assistance through a national leadership conference for thousands of members of community coalitions dedicated to preventing substance abuse. CADCA currently is the sole organization that plays a major role in helping to strengthen and develop the nation's prevention infrastructure of anti-drug coalitions in support of on-going activities funded by SAMHSA's priority grant programs including: the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant, and the Drug Free Communities Support Program. CADCA is the only identified organization that currently meets this experience level and national reach to over 5,000 identified anti- drug coalitions across the country. CADCA has long been recognized in communities as well as States throughout the nation as the national voice for the advocacy and technical support of anti-drug coalitions. As such, it is uniquely qualified and positioned to carry out the requirements of this announcement.
