Current state funding for existing child and adolescent health centers is $3,557,300 and is included in the K-12 budget as part of at-risk funding.
The current year budget includes $2 million in the Department of Community Health to fund a pilot program for nursing and behavioral health care provided by mobile teams working from a hub site to serve other schools in the community. Three pilot centers (Muskegon and Detroit) have just begun operating after significant investment and preparation for a multi-year effort. However the Governor’s FY 2016 budget does not include funding to continue the pilots. The House and Senate Community Health budgets currently include placeholders to allow the pilots to continue as planned. As an alternate solution, the Senate K-12 budget includes $2 million for the pilots.
