DMHAS Receives $8 Million in Federal Grants

15 September 2014

On September 9 Governor Malloy announced the state will receive two grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for $7.6 million. These funds will be instrumental in the quest to better serve persons with mental health or substance abuse disorders.

The grants are for the Critical Time Intervention Plus program for $3.6 million for three years and the Supported Employment Program for $4 million for five years.

The Critical Time Intervention Plus award will go toward creating three teams within existing supportive housing organizations to assist clients with moves to permanent supportive housing, behavioral health treatment, employment opportunities and recovery services.

The Supported Employment Program will increase the state’s ability to provide evidenced-based supported employment programs and focus on employment services in Hartford and New Haven.
