The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) leads and coordinates the nation’s drug policy so that it improves the health and lives of the American people. ONDCP accomplishes this through:
- Developing and overseeing implementation of the National Drug Control Strategy. The Strategy uses the latest evidence and research to promote public health and public safety approaches that address substance use disorder, reduce the consequences associated with it, and help Americans recover from substance use disorder.
- Developing and overseeing implementation of the National Drug Control Budget. Through the budget, ONDCP aligns the funding resources for sixteen Federal government agencies and departments with the goals of the National Drug Control Strategy; and
- Administering High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) and Drug-Free Communities (DFC) grant programs. Through the HIDTA program, ONDCP supports collaborative Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and public health efforts to address overdoses and disrupt drug trafficking and production. Through the DFC program, ONDCP supports community-led efforts to reduce youth substance use across the nation.
