How are the initiatives funded?

The estimated cost of the project is $10.4 million and it will be funded through a variety of resources including the quarter-cent sales tax that was approved by voters in November 2018 to improve behavioral health services and facilities in Douglas County.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Oct. 23, and construction is expected to be completed by February 2022.
