Increased Funding for County Mental Health Base

 Counties are calling for a significant investment of $150 million in the county mental health base for FY 2023-2024, in addition to the allocation of the $100 million in federal ARPA dollars for adult mental health, to begin the rebuilding process: $50 million base funding increase ($20 million proposed by Gov. Shapiro + $30 million), redirecting $100 million in school mental health funding proposed in Gov. Shapiro’s budget to county mental health base funds and a long-term plan of further increases over the next five to ten years that can develop a strong system to benefit all Pennsylvania.
