Category II: Additional Residential Treatment services, specifically for Jackson County Division 50 Drug Court.
Category III: Services for those with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders, especially agencies that work with Jackson County municipal courts outside of Kansas City.
Category IV: Special or additional treatment needs which were unanticipated at the time of responses to the funding announcement for 2016 Treatment funding.
