The Department of Economic Development announced recently that it would award $7.57 million through its Neighborhood Assistance Program to nonprofits across Missouri for community development projects.

First Call Alcohol/Drug Prevention & Recovery located in South Kansas City is one of thirty-six other organizations across the state that will benefit from NAP, which helps not-for-profit organizations raise private-sector funds by providing partial state tax credits to businesses that make contributions to approved community improvement projects.

First Call will utilize NAP tax credits to provide drug and alcohol addiction services, including the How to Cope, Caring for Kids, and How to Care programs. Services include personalized treatment plans, group therapy sessions, and educational programs featuring evidence-based curriculum.

Businesses can donate cash, materials, supplies or equipment; technical assistance and professional services; labor; real estate; or stocks and bonds. Credits can equal up to 50 percent of the total amount contributed or up to 70 percent for projects located in the most rural areas.
