In order to achieve our long-standing youth substance use prevention goals, Smithville CIA was awarded a Drug-Free Communities Grant, a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The three main goals of this grant are to 1.) reduce youth drinking, 2.) reduce youth marijuana use, and 3.) grow the capacity and collaboration of our coalition. Find out more about this grant here.
