Residents of Pike County pay a tax known as "Senate Bill 40". These funds are collected by the Pike County Collector and turned over to PCADD to provide services for its citizens with developmental disabilities. The current levy for Pike County is $.19 per hundred dollar valuation.
The PCADD Board decides how to distribute the county taxes on an annual basis. Agencies providing services to Pike County individuals who have a developmental disability may apply for funding.
The following agencies receive some of the tax levy:
Champ Clark Association for Challenged Children, who operate The Learning Center at 801 Business Highway 61 South, Bowling Green, provides an integrated early childhood preschool/daycare.
The Pike County Sheltered Workshop, known as the Pike Shop, located at 900 Independence Drive, Bowling Green, provides sheltered employment.
Ruth Jensen Village Residential Services, Inc., with offices at #5 Industrial Drive, Bowling Green, provides residential living for 51 adults in 15 locations in Bowling Green.
Some of the county taxes are used by PCADD as "match" for the Medicaid Waiver services provided to Pike County residents with developmental disabilities.
Other Funding Sources for PCADD provided services:
Missouri Department of Mental Health/Division of Developmental Disabilities partners with PCADD to provide residential, day services, community integration, community employment and transportation. The services are funded through the Missouri Home and Community Based Waivers, Partnership for Hope Waiver, Autism Waiver, and Sara Jian Lopez Waiver.
Missouri Department of Transportation has provided vehicles to PCADD through the 5310 Program and reimburses some operational costs through the Missouri Elderly and Handicapped Transportation Assistance Program (MEHTAP).
Missouri Department of Social Services/ MO Health Net is billed for targeted case management.
