Rep. Green announces $100,000 for Drug-Free Communities Program

Congressman Gene Green announced a new grant to the Central City Comprehensive Community Center in Houston to support the Drug-Free Communities Support Program. The primary goal of the program is to reduce substance abuse among youth.

“I am proud that we could secure this money to continue in our efforts to reduce drug use among our high-risk youth in Houston,” said Green.
“The Central City Community Center does such a great job in recognizing the risk factors and implementing a successful program in our communities.”

The grant will go towards helping Central City Community Center reduce drug use by increasing the number of youth who talk to their parents about drugs, strengthening the positive interface between students and schools, and increasing the community’s awareness of drug abuse issues and problems.

They will also work to increase community partnerships to help in the reduction of substance abuse.
