Gallatin County is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a one-year planning grant from the Montana Healthcare Foundation to help develop a comprehensive business plan for a regional day treatment school.
This $50,000 planning grant will be used to create the roadmap to implement and sustain a regional day treatment program to support students with behavioral health needs in receiving educational and health services in a specialized setting.
Funds will provide resources to collaboratively determine the approach to implementing the day treatment program, including location, site renovations, target student population, eligibility process, funding, contracting, and transportation considerations.
Gallatin County is contracting with Routefinder Consulting and JG Research and Evaluation to conduct this planning project in collaboration with the Gallatin Behavioral Health Coalition, county school districts, and regional behavioral health providers.
“We are excited to make progress toward better addressing the complex needs of students with behavioral health challenges through this planning project. Our county is committed to better serving our community members of all ages so that they are healthy and thriving,” said Gallatin County Commissioner Zach Brown.
