COMMISSIONERS APPROVE $79,340 FOR PUBLIC SAFETY SALES TAX PROGRAM
Kennewick, WA – Today, October 30, 2018, the Benton County Board of Commissioners approved funding for additional projects from the Public Safety Sales Tax, for an additional amount of $79,340.

$79,340 for Chaplaincy Health Care’s Step Up Program
Funding from Public Safety Sales Tax would continue to support the Step Up Program, which assesses at-risk youth at intake for anti-social and criminal behaviors and who are then enrolled in the 11-week session. Adolescents and their families graduate after successfully completing the program. This program works closely with Benton and Franklin Counties Juvenile Justice Center to get referrals, but also has a goal to reach youth and families before they enter the criminal justice system to prevent criminal behavior among at-risk youth. Funds for this program include $79,340 for 2019-2020 operating costs, including staff, training, outreach, and supplies. For more information about this program, please contact: Tom Adams at toma@chaplaincyhealthcare.org
