This initiative can help provide $15 million each year for programs to help
Jackson County children and their families.

On the November 2016 ballot, we are proposing a 1/8 of one-cent levy

All the dollars raised from this small revenue increase will stay here at home. Every cent will be spent on Jackson County’s children and youth and will not go to other parts of the state.

Eight other Missouri counties  have already approved children’s services funds.  As a result, school dropouts, juvenile crime rates and teen pregnancy have decreased by up to 50%.

A minor sales tax levy can play a vital role in providing vital services to children and youth in Jackson County who need it most.
