Grants to Jackson County, Missouri nonprofit organizations for school-based anti-drug and anti-violence programs. Funding is intended to support the delivery of Trauma-Informed Care and Trauma-Sensitive services to Jackson County residents. Eligible prevention programs must be developed in cooperation and collaboration with the school district.

This year Law Enforcement has the opportunity to establish new innovated anti-drug and anti-violence prevention programs within the schools other than DARE.

Please use this opportunity to broaden your scope of services.

COMBAT requires proposals that are submitted to be evidence-based or researched-based, that is, replicating or based on approaches that have been evaluated to be effective.  Applicants must provide thorough evidence that their proposed strategies are based on evaluated approaches, with citations showing effectiveness.
