FY2016 County Matching Grant Application

Posted Date: 
April 15, 2015

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) is pleased to announce funds in the County Matching Grant Program for Crisis Intervention and Jail Diversion for Fiscal Year 2016. Grant funds may be dedicated to new initiatives not previously supported, as well as expansion of existing projects.  The complete grant application deadline is by 5:00 p.m. on Friday July 31, 2015.

Eligible applicants consist of county government representatives including county commission, county attorney or county sheriff. These are one-year grants and projects must be achievable by June 30, 2016. You may consider program or operational costs as well as start up or infrastructure development to best meet the crisis intervention and jail diversion needs of your community.
A local investment/county match is required for these funds. The match rate is determined based upon utilization rates at Montana State Hospital during FY2014. Each county is assigned a match rate of 50% to 70%; for each local $1.00 invested, matching funds of $ .50 to $ .70 may be awarded, subject to funds available. A table reflecting established match rates for FY2016 follows. Proposals submitted in partnership with more than one county will be offered a blended match rate, determined by DPHHS.

All counties desiring consideration for FY2016 funding must submit an application, regardless of any previous award.

Projects supported through these matching funds are those that, as determined by DPHHS, will reduce reliance on Montana State Hospital for emergency and court ordered detention/evaluation and will ultimately result in cost savings to the state if implemented.
