    Federal Funding at the Intersection of Behavioral Health and Criminal Justice

    Federal funding is a key component of implementing critical local justice system efforts. The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted local communities but also provided new opportunities to enhance collaboration, address the root causes of justice-system involvement and deploy innovative programs that reduce incarceration. The National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National League of Cities (NLC) are holding a joint webinar to provide a primer on federal funding opportunities that counties and cities can leverage to support local programs at the intersection of criminal justice and behavioral health.

    Speakers will share funding opportunities through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Following the presentation, attendees are invited to attend virtual breakout sessions to engage with speakers and peers on these funding opportunities.

    Breakouts:

    • Join the Criminal Justice Peer Engagement Breakout for an in-depth discussion of BJA grants. 
    • Join the Behavioral Health and Social Services Peer Engagement Breakout for an in-depth discussion of behavioral health grants for this fiscal year. 
    • Join the Planning and Research Peer Engagement Breakout for an in-depth discussion of opportunities for using American Rescue Plan Act funds for criminal justice and behavioral health initiatives.
