Community and Children’s Resource Board
The Community and Children’s Resource Board is the administrator for the Community Children’s Service Fund, a fund created when St. Charles County passed a 1/8-cent sales tax measure in November 2004. The funds are dedicated for services to St. Charles County children and youth and will be awarded to local agencies to provide services that address the growing unmet mental health needs of our community youth.
The DDRB is a public taxing entity, commonly known as a “Senate Bill 40 Board” that enters into funding contracts with agencies that serve individuals with developmental disabilities in St. Charles County. This public tax was established in 1977 when voters of St. Charles County approved to tax themselves up to sixteen cents per $100.00 of assessed property valuation to provide community-based programs and supports for citizens with developmental disabilities.
