The Will County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition would like to officially announce that as of Sept. 7th 2023, we were awarded the continuation of the Drug Free Communities (DFC) grant through the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Receiving this award will give the WCSAPC an additional 5 years to continue our drug prevention efforts within Will County.

We would like to thank all of our partners for continued support and dedication in the efforts of education, treatment, and prevention work for the youth in our community. We are looking forward to the next five years of continuing drug prevention initiatives and working with our numerous stakeholders to create a better tomorrow for the youth in Will County.

The Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program is the nation’s leading effort to mobilize communities to prevent youth substance use.
