Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program
This program provides funding for states, tribes, and local governments to plan, implement or expand a criminal justice and mental health collaboration program. This will allow for a comprehensive response for people with mental illness (MI) and and co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse (CMISA).
Program objectives include:
- Enhance, expand, and operate mental health drop-off crisis stabilization treatment centers to support law enforcement, criminal justice agencies, and justice-involved individuals
- Increase community capacity to provide mental health advocacy and wraparound services for justice-involved individuals with mental illness
- Offer programmatic support and capacity building for criminal justice professionals, such as jails, courts and prosecutors
- Provide community supervision for individuals with severe mental health needs at risk of recidivism
Priority consideration will be given to applications that promote civil rights, increase access to justice, support crime victims, protect the public from crime and evolving threats, and build trust between law enforcement and the community, as well as projects that are intended to benefit individuals who reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
Eligible applicants include:
- State and territorial governments
- City or township governments
- County governments
- Federally recognized Tribes
- Mental health agencies
- Public and state-controlled institutions of higher education
Applicants must demonstrate the proposed project will be administered jointly by an agency with responsibility for criminal or juvenile justice activities and a mental health agency.
