risk-focused assessment and planning process,
such as Communities That Care.

SAFE AND DRUG-FREE SCHOOLS/COMMUNITIES ACT
    (SDFSCA) FUNDS—GOVERNOR’S PORTION

The state’s SDFSCA—Governor’s Portion allocation provides
match-free grants for programs/projects that
(1) prevent school violence/drug use; and (2) help schools and
communities create safe, disciplined, and drug-free environments
that support student academic achievement.

Programs must emphasize the provision of services for youth not
normally served by state/local educational agencies; and youth
that need special services or additional resources—such as
youth in detention facilities, runaway and homeless youth, school
dropouts, pregnant and parenting youth, etc.

areas under the JABG Program.
