News Release

November 8, 2023

Applications for awards from the Asset Forfeiture Special Funds are still being accepted now through December 31, 2023, at 5pm.

Any local programs designed to combat drug abuse and divert gang activity among elementary though high school aged students in Humboldt County have an opportunity to apply for funds granted from efforts of the Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF).  

With over 70 investigations per year that often involve large scale, complex and illicit narcotics traffickers and organizations, HCDTF efforts lead to the removal of illegal profits from those engaged in drug sales, manufacturing, and distribution.  15% of funds lawfully removed from the hands of drug traffickers are set aside to fund continuation or development of positive intervention community programs.  

A panel consisting of the Humboldt County District Attorney, a local police Chief, the Humboldt County Sheriff, and the Chief Probation Officer will be reviewing applications and awarding funding to those who meet requirements.

On behalf of all members of the Humboldt County Drug Task Force Executive Board, District Attorney Stacey Eads invites those interested in developing or continuing a community program combatting drug abuse amongst youth in our community to please visit the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office Programs and Outreach website page at: https://humboldtgov.org/3136/Programs-and-Outreach to learn more and apply.
