2010 – 2011 Executive Budget Recommendation and Enacted Budget Update

Governor David A. Paterson has proposed a 2010-11 Executive Budget for New York State that makes significant spending reductions in order to eliminate a $7.4 billion deficit and institutes key reforms to put New York on the road to economic and fiscal recovery. The Executive Budget for the Office of Mental Health (OMH) State Operations balances the competing challenges of achieving savings while ensuring that mental health obligations continue to be met. Community mental health services supported by Aid to Localities funding in the Executive Budget are engaged in sweeping changes to improve access and availability of community supports and services, promote interagency collaboration and expand capacity while reducing the rate of growth in spending by promoting efficiencies, restructuring program funding models, reinvesting under-utilized resources and delaying implementation of new initiatives until they are affordable.
