METHODOLOGY:

Part II of the bill appropriates $500,000 in each of FY 2022 and FY 2023 for the purpose of funding primary prevention services for families.  The Department anticipates using these funds to support a project known as Community Collaborations to Strengthen and Preserve Families (CCSPF), which establishes an "integrated continuum of family support with community-based services such as mental health, substance misuse treatment, economic supports, and educational programs...."  The project currently has three locations through the state, and the Department expects the funding in this bill would be used to expand to additional locations.
