The Kittitas County Law and Justice Council is offering mini grants to organizations and community groups that support the law and justice system, according to a news release.

Each year, approximately $20,000 is earmarked from the one-tenth of 1 percent law and justice sales tax for the grant program. This can include equipment, materials, new programs and projects that support the goals of the Law and Justice Council and benefit the public and law and justice community.

Applications are available at the Sheriff’s Office or the Sheriff’s Office website

Applications must be postmarked or received no later then July 9. The Law and Justice Budget Committee will evaluate all requests and forward recommendations to the Law and Justice Council for approval. The applicant may be required to make a presentation to the committee if clarification is needed. The final decision on grant funding is subject to the approval of the county commissioners.
