CADCA's 2023 Blue Ribbon applications now open!

Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America's (CADCA) 2023 Blue Ribbon application process (formerly Got Outcomes! Awards) nationally recognizes coalitions that create positive, long-lasting changes in their communities by implementing a comprehensive and feasible plan guided by local data. Coalitions will have an opportunity to receive the prestigious Blue Ribbon Awards in the following categories: Coalition in Focus, Coalition of Excellence or Coalition of the Year.

This is also the opportunity to be recognized as a CADCA Blue Ribbon Coalition for doing an exceptional job updating and utilizing coalition products. Since the launch in 2021, 34 coalitions have been recognized as Blue Ribbon Coalitions. Coalitions are able to bring this recognition back to their community to elevate the profile of their work. This provides a new avenue to increase community visibility and support. The prominence of this 2-year recognition was demonstrated during CADCA’s 2022 National Leadership Forum through the support of Dr. Rahul Gupta, Director of National Drug Control Policy.

Learn about the Blue Ribbon application process and how to become a Blue Ribbon Coalition! CADCA will be hosting an informational webinar on Tuesday, April 18, at 10 a.m. PT to discuss the application process.
