Community Funding and Allocations

OhioMHAS receives funds from the Ohio General Assembly and distributes those funds to local mental health systems that are administered by Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADAMH) or Community Mental Health (CMH) boards.

While the distribution of funds is guided by the intent of the Ohio General Assembly, OhioMHAS creates priorities and direction for using these funds to meet Ohioans’ need for efficient, effective and quality systems of care.
