Jericho Resources, Inc. selected to prepare mental health transformation grant application. (April 5, 2010)
Jericho Resources, Inc. was selected to assist Milwaukee County’s Housing and Behavioral Health Divisions in preparing a Mental Health Transformation Grant application to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). If awarded, the grant would provide up to $3.75 million over a 5-year period, allowing Milwaukee County to integrate mental health services into its supportive housing model. This expansion would reduce the risk of homelessness due to mental illness, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, long-term institutionalization in a nursing home, jail, or other facility. “Milwaukee County has been a leader in effectively implementing SAMHSA-funded services, and I am honored to help the Health & Human Services Department pursue additional grant monies that will transform the way people suffering from mental illnesses are able to receive needed support,” said William Martin, the firm’s president.
