I. Background

ONDCP previously collected information to establish a baseline of Federal, State, and local drug control funding levels in the 25 largest metropolitan areas. The proposed continuation of this data collection will help ONDCP measure spending level changes, coordinate services, and develop National Drug Control Strategies.

The 25 Cities project identifies in each affected city significant movements in key drug use measures, and encourages city administrators to use proven programs that increase efficiencies and effectiveness; promote coordination and collaboration; develop commitments; and, gather accurate performance measurement data. Detailed information regarding the project is available at

Type of Collection: Reinstatement with change of an approved data collection that expired.

Title of Information Collection: Survey of drug treatment, drug use prevention, and law enforcement resources available to cities identified in ONDCP's 25 Cities project.

Frequency: Annually by fiscal year.

Affected Public: Instrumentalities of State, local, and tribal governments.
