Event Dates

In this webinar, representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance and The Council of State Governments Justice Center will review the FY 2021 Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program application process.

This grant program provides an anticipated 18 awards in the amount of $550,000 each to city or township governments, county governments, Native American tribal governments (federally recognized), public and state-controlled institutions of higher education, state governments, and mental health agencies for a 36-month project.

This project will help entities prepare, create, or expand comprehensive plans to implement collaboration programs that target preliminary qualified people convicted of crimes and promote public safety and public health for people with mental illnesses and co-occurring mental illnesses and substance addiction who are in the criminal justice system.
