A portion of the Anti-Drug Sales Tax Funds is used to help agencies in meeting local match requirements for federal, state, or local grants. The ability of COMBAT to use funds in this manner is very beneficial to Jackson County. For every $1 of COMBAT grant match funding, an additional $3 of additional funding was brought to our local communities. Grant match funding may be used for crime and violence prevention, drug prevention, or substance abuse treatment services.
Agencies seeking to obtain grant match funds must meet the same eligibility requirements that regular funded agencies must meet. These include:
