Jackson County COMBAT (Community Backed Anti-Drug/Anti-Crime/Anti-Violence Tax)

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Jackson County, Missouri nonprofit organizations for programs to prevent substance abuse and violence. Funding is intended to support programs that deliver trauma-informed and/or trauma-sensitive services to County residents. Programs must be research or evidence-based, and targeted populations must be clearly described and justified as appropriate for an anti-violence/anti-drug funding application.

Partnerships are encouraged that take advantage of existing resources, expertise and experience in working with the targeted population. 

COMBAT will be allocating resources for programs in “hot spots” that have been identified through inputting crime report data to generate Areas of Interest smart maps outlining those neighborhoods where anti-violence services are most needed.

With very few exceptions that must be justified by clear evidence of large scale impact and effectiveness in preventing or reducing substance abuse or violence, programs that have been funded by COMBAT for more than five (5) years will not be funded without inclusion of new/updated/enhanced strategies that reflect the most current best practices.  Long standing programs must justify continued use of strategies that have been used for many years, and prove that the contribution of these programs to reducing societal substance abuse and violence is actually worth their continuation.  

For a list of specific anti-violence areas of focus, see pages 8-9 of the 2020 Prevention Application Document in Supporting Documents below.
