2015 Request For Proposal (Treatment) Process | 2015 Funding Renewal (Prevention) Application

2015 Grant Match Application

The Community Backed Anti-Drug Tax (COMBAT) is supported by a county-wide sales tax, at the rate of one-quarter of one percent for a period of seven years, used solely for the purpose of the arrest and prosecution, incarceration, treatment and prevention of drug related offenses and violent crimes; and the judicial processing of adult and juvenile violators of such offenses. Anti-Drug Sales Tax funds annually generate over $19 million (an average based on revenues over the last 10 years) and are used throughout the county to support these efforts. The Jackson County Drug Commission is charged with the responsibility of establishing the priorities of COMBAT and making recommendations to the Jackson County Legislature for the funding of various initiatives that support this mission.   

Drug and violent crime related initiatives are supported through an allocation formula approved by the legislature.

Opportunities exist for community agencies to apply for COMBAT anti-drug sales tax funds that support prevention and treatment programs. COMBAT looks to fund programs that are comprehensive, innovative, and evidence-based that address substance abuse, drug abuse prevention, or prevention of drug-related or violent crimes. COMBAT funding can be in the form of regular funding, or through grant match funding. View a list of Prevention AgenciesTreatment Agencies and Grant Match Agencies receiving funding from COMBAT.

COMBAT funds community agencies through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process and/or a funding application process.  RFPs are issued every two years for prevention and treatment, and renewed through the funding application.  Grant match funding can be applied for each year through the funding application process.
