CARS and the SDFSC TA team have a strong reputation for creating and disseminating publications that are relevant, timely, and research-based.. The appropriate resources can make your work easier by translating sophisticated research findings into concrete tips and strategies for application in real-world settings. The SDFSC Prevention Briefs and other products are distributed to grantees along with additional resources. These are also available on the project website.

The California Governor’s Program Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Technical Assistance (SDFSC TA) project ended on September 30th, 2011. The project was funded by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) and managed by the Center for Applied Research Solutions (CARS).

Publications and resources are still available to access through this archived website. If you are a California alcohol, drug or violence prevention program, you may be eligible for no-cost training and technical assistance services.
