Jefferson County Community Mental Health Fund

Overview

Jefferson County Community Mental Health Fund Board was established and authorized by Jefferson County Council and the Statutes of the State of Missouri to receive and administer a Jefferson County Mental Illness property tax levy and a Community Children’s Services sales tax.

The purpose of both taxes is to assure a system of care for Jefferson County individuals to receive appropriate comprehensive mental health and substance use treatment for adults and children.

The Community Children’s Services sales tax is a 1/8 cent rate for all taxable goods purchased in Jefferson County to be used solely for the purpose of children’s mental health and substance use treatment, including individual and family counseling, psychiatric care, and school liaison services for all school districts. Additional services include domestic violence residential and counseling services and children advocacy services for Jefferson County. Annual revenues estimate $2.8 million.

The Mental Illness Levy is a property tax levy for all residents and businesses located in Jefferson County. The Mental Illness Levy funds comprehensive mental health, substance use treatment, and psychiatric care for Jefferson County individuals. The levy is set for .0910 cents for 2019 with an estimated revenue base of $3.1 million.

The JCCMHF board consists of nine members and must include a physician and the County Executive. The nine members are appointed by the Jefferson County Council and represent each of the seven county districts.

The JCCMHF contracts with COMTREA as the primary agent to assure appropriate systems of care are in place for all Jefferson County individuals.

Additional funding has been granted to Jefferson R-7 School District, Lutheran Family Services, NCADA, De Soto District 73, and Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition.
