The 2020 Kitsap County Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Therapeutic Court Tax Program Request for Proposals for funding collected through the 1/10th of 1 percent sales tax is now open. Kitsap County established the tax under RCW 82.14.460.

Go to the Kitsap County Purchasing website at https://www.kitsapgov.com/das/Pages/Online-Bids.aspx for details, including selection criteria, eligibility and general terms and conditions.

Treatment sales tax funds collected in 2020 will be allocated through two separate Requests for Proposals:

  • New grant proposals should be submitted from organizations for projects which have not been funded during the 2019 grant cycle, using the Treatment Sales Tax.
  • Continuation grant proposals should be submitted by current grantees whose projects were funded during the 2019 grant cycle to request one additional budget period of funding for a project period that would otherwise expire.

All Proposals "must be used solely for the purpose of providing for the operation or delivery of chemical dependency or mental health treatment programs and services and for the operation or delivery of therapeutic court programs and services. Programs and services include, but are not limited to, treatment services, case management, transportation, and housing that are a component of a coordinated chemical dependency or mental health treatment program or service."

Approximately $6 million will be awarded for projects or program services delivered between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.

Proposal deadlines:

  • Continuation grant proposals: 3 p.m., July 24, 2019

All new grant applicants and continuation Grant applicants must attend a mandatory grant proposer's conference and submit a Letter of Intent online to be eligible to apply for the 2020 treatment sales tax funding.

The letter of intent for each type of proposal will be made available at each grant proposer's mandatory conference. The letter of intent for both grant proposals is due at 3 p.m. May 31, 2019.
