Section 1.

[245G.01] CREATION OF ACCOUNT FOR REGIONAL BEHAVIORAL
HEALTH CRISIS PROGRAM GRANTS.

A regional behavioral health crisis program grant account is created in the special revenue

money deposited in the account from any source is available until expended.

The commissioner

equip facilities for regional behavioral health crisis programs. The grant is contingent on
the commissioner of human services' review and authorization under subdivision 2 verifying
need, ability and willingness to build on existing resources, and sustainability. The grant
process is designed to allow flexibility in the design of the program to meet the needs of
the region. The purpose of the program is to provide, at a minimum, screening and assessment
services for persons with mental illness or substance use disorders. This may include
individuals who are under arrest or subject to arrest, or in immediate need of crisis services.

services shall review proposals by applicants and give priority to those that:

(1) demonstrate a need for the program in the region;

(2) provide a detailed service plan, including the services that will be provided, to whom,
and staffing requirements;

(3) provide an estimated cost of operating the program;

(4) verify financial sustainability by detailing sufficient funding sources; and

(5) include an ability and willingness to build on existing resources in the community.

(b) The commissioner shall not authorize grant funds under subdivision 1 unless the
applicant can document and verify need, ability and willingness to build on existing resources,
and sustainability.

Subd. 3.

Applicant.

For purposes of this section, "applicant" means a statutory or home
rule charter city, county, housing and redevelopment authority, hospital, or other public
entity designated to apply for a regional behavioral health crisis program grant by the local
mental health authority, as defined in section 245.466, or on behalf of a regional consortium
of organizations that serve individuals with mental illness or a substance use disorder.

fund to the commissioner of management and budget for grants under Minnesota Statutes,
