Funding and responsibility

The LDAT program has been funded by the Australian Government as part of the response to the Final Report of the National Ice Taskforce 2015 and the 2015 National Ice Action Strategy.


The Taskforce and the Strategy identified that localised community action was needed to prevent and reduce the harms from crystal methamphetamine (‘ice’) impacting the community.

The Australia-wide program will be implemented by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation between 2016 and 2020. It will provide a platform and resources to support communities to develop and deliver evidence-based social change projects that prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug harms.
