Jefferson County Behavioral Health Programs Funded by 1/10th of 1% Sales Tax (Draft)

Supplemental RFP with 1/10th of 1 Percent Sales Tax Funds for Community Grants in 2020

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners is announcing the availability of 1/10th of 1 Percent sales tax funds for additional community grants in 2021 and 2022. This grant opportunity is intended to maintain, create, or enhance local services and programs overseen by the Jefferson County Behavioral Health Advisory Committee.

These contracts will be for a 24-month term and are to be used for the sole purpose of providing the delivery of substance abuse and/or mental health treatment programs, co-occurring disorder treatment, prevention programs, and for the operation or delivery of therapeutic court programs.

Programs and services include, but are not limited to prevention and early intervention services, treatment services, case management, transportation, and housing that are a component of a coordinated substance abuse or mental health treatment program or service (see authorizing statute RCW 82.14.460).

Funding for this program comes from the Jefferson County 1/10th of 1 Percent sales tax collected for behavioral health programs (mental health and substance abuse).

The contract term will be from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2022. Any potential renewal of a contract will be at the sole discretion of the Board of County Commissioners and no renewals are guaranteed.

Programs will be evaluated by contract compliance, proven effectiveness of services as demonstrated by internal and community based evaluation mechanisms and the stability of funding. Note that the awarded funds cannot supplant any other sources of funds or billing currently available for similar services to members of the population under consideration. These funds are not guaranteed to continue at the same rates, nor does the award of this contract guarantee future contracts.
