We are excited to announce that all funding for school-based health care remains intact in Governor Snyder’s Budget Recommendations for 2016!
In a year in which the state added 17 new school-based/school-linked health centers and programs, we are thrilled to carry this momentum forward. Whereas many programs in our state have been hit hard over the last few years, school-based health care continues to thrive and has even expanded to additional underserved communities.
This would not be possible without all of our dedicated SCHA-MI Members who continue to be our tireless advocates every year. Thanks to your dedication and support, School-Based Health Care is continues to be a major priority in Michigan.
The budget wasn’t all positive news for everyone, and can be summed up as a mixed bag as a whole. Whereas dental care for children in the Detroit area received great news, the Department of Community Health is experiencing looming cuts on the horizon.
