LCC funds local organizations

RUSHVILLE — The Rush County Local Coordinating Council recently received an additional $5,000 in funding to support safe and drug free environments at local schools. Working from a $20,000 budget members awarded funding to local member groups during Thursday’s meeting.

Funding is limited to three basic categories that meet state mandated requirements in the areas of prevention and education (on the use of drugs and alcohol), intervention and treatment (for use or abuse of drugs and alcohol), and justice and law enforcement.

During the recent award period, the LCC approved funding for a number of local programs.

In the area of prevention and education, RCHS drug testing received $1,572.30; $700 was awarded to help pay for an At-Risk Counselor; the Creating Positive Relationships program received $225; S.A.D.D. got $1,400; and Peer Helpers and Facilitators received $1,175.

Treatment and Intervention funding went to Centerstone ($2,072.28) and Harcourt Counseling ($3,000).

In the area of Law enforcement and Justice, the Rushville Police Department’s D.A.R.E. program received $700, RCSD and RPD equipment $3,722.25, and Rush County Probation Department was awarded $650 for drug testing expenses.

Each month one organization that receives financial assistance from the LCC gives a presentation to members explaining how the financial backing assists them in meeting their needs.

The featured program at the most recent meeting was provided by representatives from Communities That Care. The organization strives to make both at-risk youth and the community work together to form a healthier environment for children and families in the community.

During the January meeting members voted to support the Communities That Care program and assist in providing necessary resources and data.

LCC meetings are open to the public. The organization meets at 1 p.m. the third Thursday of each month with the exception of July at the Boys & Girls Club of Rush County.
