Portman Announces $54 Million in Federal Grants to Benefit Community Mental Health Centers Across Ohio

September 28, 2021 | Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) announced that The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded $54 million in federal grants to Community Mental Health Centers across Ohio.

These grants will continue to support and expand access to mental health and behavioral support as Americans continue to confront the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to SAMHSA, the funding comes from the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) of 2021 and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplement (CRRS) Act of 2021.

“These grants are great news for Ohio. The social isolation and increased anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated many of the issues Ohioans face that can negatively impact mental health,” said Portman. “These SAMHSA grants will help many treatment facilities across Ohio as they continue their good work of helping individuals, and helping people to get on a path to long-term recovery.”
