Drug-Free Workplace Program

This Program permits the Small Business Administration (SBA) to make grants to eligible intermediaries to assist small businesses financially and technically in establishing DFWP programs.

That statute also amended the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C.

Section 631 et seq.) to require recipients
of Small Business Development Center (SBDC) grants to provide information and assistance to small businesses with respect to establishing DFWP programs and authorized SBA to provide additional funding to SBDCs for that purpose.
