28: Mental Health Recovery Facility Project

Project Statement

This project will provide funding for land acquisition, design, construction, and/or equipping of a mental health recovery facility project and/or renovations, improvements, additions to, and equipping of an existing facility so as to provide a residential style facility for individuals with mental health and potentially co-occurring addictive disease(s). It is anticipated that to the extent permitted by law the facility or facilities would be built in conjunction with one or more public or other private partner(s) that may provide additional capital funds to the project to support SPLOST funding and that would provide the operational funding for the facility. The program is envisioned to provide a facility or facilities to provide congregate living style facility that could accommodate group and/or individuals for counseling programming. An example of a potential partner organization may be, but not be limited to, Advantage Behavioral Health Systems, a Community Service Board (CSB), duly created and existing pursuant to the Constitution and laws of the State of Georgia, specifically O.C.G.A. § 37-2-6. Additionally, to the extent allowed by law, funds may be used as matching funds for leveraging grant opportunities.
