2020 Annual Survey of Coalitions Now Open!

What is the Annual Survey of Coalitions?

CADCA's 2020 Annual Survey of Coalitions is the leading source of information on community-level substance use and misuse prevention coalitions in the country. 

The survey data has informed training and technical assistance needs, advocacy efforts, creation of national partnerships and broader community-based prevention research. In addition, the Annual Survey of Coalitions Fact Sheet allows coalition members to see the successes of their work, how their efforts align with coalitions across the country and where additional assistance is needed. 

All coalitions across the country can participate—you don't have to be a CADCA member. Your contribution is equally impactful whether your coalition is emerging or established.


Win a FREE Registration to Upcoming CADCA Events 

We are offering special incentives for coalitions who complete the survey early. Two lucky winners will win a registration to either the 2020 Mid-Year Training Institute (July 26-30, 2020) or 2021 National Leadership Forum (Feb. 1-4, 2021) if they complete the survey by Friday, Jan. 24.


Who can complete the survey and what information is needed?

One person, preferably one who is very familiar with the day-to-day activities of the coalition, should complete the survey. The survey typically takes less than one hour to complete. You can start the survey and return to it at any time. All of your information is automatically saved. This year, we have pre-populated demographic fields of the survey.
