On April 5th, 2005, the citizens of Lafayette County passed a one-eighth of a cent sales tax measure, which created a Children's Services Fund for children and youth nineteen years of age or less in Lafayette County. The fund is created pursuant to RSMo ss67.1775 and RSMo ss210.861. The funds are awarded to local agencies that provide services and fulfill unmet needs of qualifying children in Lafayette County, Missouri. Our mission is to provide quality, comprehensive training and services to protect the well-being and safety of children and youth 19 years of age or less and to strengthen families in Lafayette County.
Effective 04/18/2018 the LCCSF Board of Directors has approved monthly funding requests for agencies requesting $15,000 or less. The applications can be found under Proposal Requests. If you have any questions please contact the Executive Director. Monthly applications must be submitted by the 2nd Friday of the month. The board will make funding decisions at the next board meeting and approved funds will be available by the last Friday of the month.
The next LCCSF meeting will be held at 7 - 8:30 PM Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 at Lafayette County Health Dept. basement, Lexington, MO 64067. The board will hold a special meeting immediately following for the purpose of discussing funding requests.
This fund is established by Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 210, Section 210.861 and Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 67. Section 76.1775. The question passed on the Lafayette County April 2005 Ballot.
