2022 Grant Application

2022 Grant Application Rules

Cass County's LCC meets the second Monday of each month at Revolution Community Church from 12pm-1pm. This meeting is open to all.

Each county has a Local Coordinating Council (LCC), which is the planning and coordinating body for addressing alcohol and other drug problems. Members include volunteers from a variety of organizations including education, treatment, social services, and local police. LCCs are required to submit a Comprehensive Community Plan, which consists of an assessment of the local alcohol and other drug abuse problems in the county, including problem identification and supportive data; a listing of proposed objectives to help alleviate the stated problems; and an evaluation component designed to measure the success of the plan's strategies.

Comprehensive Community Plan

The Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) is a systematic and community-driven gathering, analysis, and reporting of community-level indicators for the purpose of identifying and addressing local substance use problems through SMART goals. Each year, the LCC will update the SMART goals based on emerging and newly-identified problems. Ultimately, the CCP enables an LCC to maximize its efforts, understand existing resources and implement practices and policies to meet its goals of reducing substance use within the community. Watch this video for more detailed description.

Each year the LCC collects community perception surveys. This is how we decide what our CCP will address for our community. If you would like to fill out the survey for 2022 please click here. To see last year's results please click here.

ICJI works with local, state, and federal entities to evaluate programs associated with: prevention, detection & solution of crimes; law enforcement and criminal/juvenile justice, in an effort to improve and coordinate all aspects of law enforcement and criminal/juvenile justice.

In addition, ICJI works to develop new methods for the prevention & reduction of crime, while stimulating research & compiling and analyzing information/data for dissemination to decision makers.

ICJI provides a Policies and Procedures Manual for each LCC to follow.
