TC Commissioners Award Treatment Sales Tax Funds
Grants Will Assist Youth And Adults With Mental Health And Substance Abuse Issues. OLYMPIA – The Board of Thurston County Commissioners recently awarded financial grants from the Treatment Sales Tax (TST) fund to three community organizations located in Thurston County. Grants are focused on assisting youth or adults in the county with mental health and/or chemical dependency issues. The funds are a result of a recent Request for Proposals.
To qualify for TST funds organizations must use evidenced-based practices and services that have consistently demonstrated their effectiveness in helping people with substance abuse or mental illness challenges achieve their goals. Effectiveness is established by people who have conducted rigorous studies and obtained similar outcomes.
