Board of County Commissioners Adopts Policy for the Distribution of Drug Seizure Fund Grants

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2019

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners have elected to assume responsibility for the distribution of drug seizure funds.  The purpose is to ensure that the use of these funds provide the maximum benefit to the citizens of Citrus County. Administrative Regulation (AR 2.23) has been developed which includes the submittal period as well as criteria for the evaluation of these submittals.

This policy will permit the Board to evaluate the requests for Drug Seizure Funds and determine which will have the greatest benefit to the community. Requests will be considered on a quarterly basis. Grant funds use must be closely related to drug education or prevention programs.  The schedule for the first round of grant applications is as follows:

          Submission of the Request to the Sheriff’s Office                                   May 30, 2019

          Applications forwarded to the County by Sheriff’s Office                     June 14, 2019

          Board Consideration of Applications - Special Board Meeting            July 9, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.

For more information about the grant process or to receive a copy of the guidelines please call, Jeff Kopp, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office at 352-341-7404 or Debra Stack, Citrus County Administration Office at 352-527-5467.
