    2. Crisis intervention team training and support; and
    3. Residential inpatient behavioral health treatment programs.

Pre-Application Information:

Submit by 11:59 PM, July 21, 2021 in the grant portal.

Applications can NOT be submitted if the agency has not first requested access. This process could take up to three business days to receive your login ID and password, so please plan accordingly.

The KCJCC must ensure a predetermined percentage of JAG funds are passed through and awarded to units of local government (city or county) or awarded to entities for a project directly benefiting a unit of local government. For purposes of this grant project period, approximately 60 percent or more of the $2.15 million must meet this pass-through requirement. Applications from nonprofit, community, and faith-based organizations that include voluntarily signed waivers from local jurisdictions indicating a benefit from the proposed grant project will receive priority over applications that do not include waivers.

JAG funds shall be used to supplement, not supplant, other federal, state, or local funds that would
otherwise be available for the proposed activities.
