How the American Rescue Plan Helps Criminal Justice Stakeholders Respond to Behavioral Health Crises

Event Dates

This event will introduce local criminal justice stakeholders to ways that American Rescue Plan funding can help support collaborative crisis and early diversion responses to reduce criminal justice contact for people with behavioral health needs.

Speakers will focus on what local criminal justice stakeholders need to know to access new opportunities, ensure that resources reach the people who need them most, and form effective partnerships. Speakers will also highlight effective ways to advocate for local needs, particularly for programs where there is considerable state oversight (e.g., Medicaid).
