The Challenge Newsletter
The Challenge is a publication of OSDFS and a principal vehicle by which OSDFS communicates with the field, and provides information on research-based activities, best practices, and other information related to effective drug abuse and violence prevention strategies. Key recipients of the newsletter include state and local education agencies, OSDFS discretionary grantees, prevention specialists, and public and private organizations involved with safe and drug-free schools programs. This grant was awarded in FY 2005.
