Agencies receive tax support for youth mental health services

Eight Catholic agencies are among those that will receive $35 million from a sales tax in St. Louis County providing help to children and teens.

The funding comes from a one-fourth-cent sales tax passed in November. In the early 1990s, Missouri adopted a law allowing counties to establish local community children's service funds to provide mental health services to children from birth to age 19. Other counties that have established a tax for the fund include Lincoln, St. Charles and Jefferson counties and the City of St. Louis.
