  9    cally designed to address an identified unmet need in the region. Such a  ser-
 10    vice  plan  component may be based upon the assertive community treatment team
 11    model, other available intensive models, or a model unique to the region. Such
 12    a service plan component shall specify the distinct resource  contribution  of
 13    each  participating  entity, the terms and conditions of participation and the
 14    measures to be used to assess performance and outcomes under the service  plan
 15    component.  The  service  plan  component shall include governance procedures,
 16    evaluation data, and the means for amendment or  termination  of  the  service
 17    plan component.
 18        (2)  If a service plan component is developed pursuant to this section and
 19    approved  by  the  state  mental  health authority, the service plan component
 20    shall be funded by the state as provided in the service plan  component,  sub-
 21    ject to the appropriation made for that purpose.
 22        (3)  In addition to the funds provided for in section 39-3136, Idaho Code,
 23    the state may provide development grants for mental health and substance abuse

 32    than August 1 and shall be granted no later than October 1 on such  forms  and
 33    in such a manner as provided by rule by the state mental health authority.
 34        (4)  Nothing  in  this  chapter  shall preclude the regional mental health
 35    board from receiving private and other public funding to assist  the  regional
 36    mental health board in providing services.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                             RS 16938

This legislation is a recommendation of the Interim Committee on
Mental Health and Substance Abuse that met during the past summer and
fall of 2006.  This legislation modifies and expands the state mental
health authority development grant program to include substance abuse
services.  Additionally, the legislation authorizes grant awards to
include multi disciplinary proposals that encompass the departments
of corrections, juvenile corrections, and the courts as well as the
regional mental health boards.  Also, depending on funding
availability, development grants could be awarded on an on-going
multi year basis.  

                           FISCAL NOTE

Any fiscal impact is dependent on a legislative appropriation in any
given year.  This year, there is a request from the Interim Committee
on Substance Abuse and Mental Health to the Joint Appropriation and
Finance Committee to fund the mental health development grant program
with $2,000,000 of one-time appropriations and another $1,400,000 of
on-going appropriations.
