Title

Resolution to Approve an Agreement with Washtenaw County Community Mental Health to provide Mental Health Treatment Services to Mental Health Court Participants ($30,704.00)

Memorandum

This resolution seeks Council approval for an Agreement with Washtenaw County Community Mental Health for mental health services to 15th Judicial District Court defendants who are participants in the Mental Health Court program.  These services are funded by grant funds through the State Court Administrative Office for Grant Fiscal Year 2019, and without regard to City Fiscal Year.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funding for treatment services under this Agreement are provided for through the State Court Administrative Office Michigan Mental Health Court Grant Program (SCAO-MMHCGP) ($30,704.00).  The grant award was accepted and contract approved by City Council on October 15, 2018 (R-18-406).

 

Approval of a ten percent (10%) contingency amount is also requested to allow the Court to increase services should additional funds become available for mental health services through an approved SCAO grant program budget amendment [e.g., approved grant project line-item budget adjustments within the total program award.]
