Seneca County has received $2.8 million dollars in federal funding to help residents with treatment for substance abuse and mental health.
The funding was granted through the Community Mental Health Block Grant and goes towards helping communities by supporting research and boosting treatment services for mental health and substance abuse.
The funding was announced Monday by Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both strongly in favor of bolstering services to help the mental health crisis happening in New York.
