Law enforcement grant program due July 19!

Contact: Sharon Swanson, Brandon Anderson

In the 2019-2021 operating budget, the Legislature appropriated $4.0 million for grants and operation of the Mental Health Field Response Teams Program.

Grants will be awarded by Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) to local law enforcement agencies based on locally developed proposals to incorporate mental health professionals into the agencies' mental health field response planning and response.

Subject to funding limitations, grants will be awarded to local jurisdictions based on locally developed proposals to establish or expand existing programs. The deadline to submit an application for grants is July 19, 2019.

For questions about the legislation, please contact Sharon Swanson or Brandon Anderson with AWC.

For questions about the grant application, please contact John McGrath jmcgrath@waspc.org.
