The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will be used to prevent and reduce drug misuse by 12-18 year old youth in the City of Brodhead in Green County.

On June 30, ONDCP announced an award of more than $3.2 million to 65 communities nationwide for its Community-Based Coalition Enhancement Grants to Address Local Drug Crises (CARA) Program. The funding will enhance the efforts of current or former DFC recipients to prevent opioid, methamphetamine, and prescription drug use among youth ages 12-18 across the United States.
