CBI Federally Funded To Run A Drug Free Communities Program (DFCP)

This is example of our diverse capacity building initiatives. DFCP is a collaborative of dedicated volunteers, schools, health and cultural practitioners, and civic leaders who will be working together to stop the emerging threat of youth drug and alcohol abuse on the Navajo Nation. We intend to use our influence and federal grant funds to put a stop to the hundreds of drug traffickers who travel through our reservation’s major highways – and we will dedicate these same resources and endurance in supporting the merchants in reservation border towns to stop selling alcohol and products used for inhalants to our underage youth and intoxicated family members. We will further call on local educators, law enforcement, and parents to step up into action so that alcohol, marijuana, and inhalants will no longer be abused in what is supposed to be a “dry” community.
