The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) is seeking comments from the public on whether and to what extent ONDCP’s policy development process, drug budget review and certification processes of the 18 National Drug Control Program Agencies, and Grant Administration Programs perpetuate systemic barriers to opportunities for underserved communities and individuals from those communities. ONDCP is also seeking comments from the public regarding how its future proposed policies, budgets, regulations, grants, or programs might be more effective in advancing equity.
Please see the attached document, take a moment to consider this important topic and, if you wish, share your thoughts with us. In turn, we will prepare formal comments for submission to the Office.
ONDCP encourages and will accept public comments on or before Friday, August 6, 2021. PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH US NO LATER THAN AUGUST 4 so we will have adequate time to prepare formal comments. If you decide to submit comments to ONDCP directly, please “cc” us or send us a copy of your comments.
