Public Funding Resources for Alcohol and Other Drug Programs. [Revised.]
In recent years there has been a remarkable increase in the number of alcohol and other drug education, prevention, and treatment programs in higher education and funding has not kept pace with program development. The purpose of this document is to help those unfamiliar with the process of funding development to identify possible resources and to gain basic ideas about how to begin the process of searching for support. It includes a simplified explanation of how to understand the "Federal Register" and the "Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA)," two large and often confusing documents where the process of seeking public funding begins. The guide covers only public funding sources (those available from government entities), although there are many other sources such as private foundations and trusts. For readers interested in exploring private funding, some helpful resources in this area are included. Following descriptions of the "Federal Register" and the CFDA are half-page descriptions of 19 public program resources and of 11 public research resources. A resource bibliography concludes the document. The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 are appended. (NB)
