Background: In 2005, Washington State approved legislation allowing counties to raise their local sales tax by one-tenth of one percent to augment state funding of mental health and chemical dependency programs and services. In September 2013, the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) passed a resolution authorizing a sales and use tax for Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Therapeutic Court Programs. This sales and use tax shall be known as “Treatment Sales Tax” or TST. The BOCC has the decision-making authority for funding decisions, the KCDHS serves as the fund manager, and the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) has the recommending authority.
Scope of Work: Proposals for TST funding must address the Goals, Objectives and Strategies prioritized in the 2021 Kitsap County Behavioral Health Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan can be found at https://www.kitsapgov.com/hs/Documents/Final%202021%20Behavioral%20Health%20Strategic%20Plan.pdf
