FLACRA has secured added funding to help with its efforts in the region.
The Finger Lakes Area Counseling and Recovery Agency received $3.83 million from the Department of Health and Human Services.
“FLACRA is proud to be selected for this generous award,” said Jennifer Carlson, CEO of FLACRA. “This grant will expand the integration of services and treatment for individuals and families impacted by addiction and mental health issues. We are passionate in our mission to improve the health and wellness of the communities of Yates and Ontario counties and the entire Fingers Lakes Region. In collaboration with our local community partners, this innovative, integrated service delivery model will offer increased engagement, access, coordination and earlier behavioral health intervention, and quality outcomes for those experiencing complex behavioral health challenges.”
“We care about making sure our constituents have fair access to the mental health and substance abuse resources they need, especially during this crisis,” added Congressman Tom Reed. “We were proud to support this funding and we will continue to fight for the resources our area organizations need to continue serving our communities.”
