The Block Grant application process is the formal mechanism for the Ohio Department of Mental Health (ODMH) to distribute federal Block Grant funds. Fiscal Year 2010 will again be a challenging year for grant-funded programs. ODMH’s allocation from the federal government has again been significantly reduced. Many previously funded projects will be continued, but in some instances funding levels may be reduced. Questions about the budget and available funding should be directed to Mario DeSantis, 614-466-1204.
