2012–2013 Enacted Budget

The Office of Mental Health's (OMH) final 2012/13 Enacted Budget includes $3.536 billion in All Funds Appropriations, which represents a net year to year decrease of $35 million. The Aid to Localities Budget achieves $96.8 million in Local Assistance cost savings measures offset by growth in resources to support residential units already in development opening, reinvestment in community based alternatives and funding for the nursing home litigation settlement and adult homes. OMH's State Operations Budget appropriates more than $2.0 billion in the 2012/13 Enacted Budget. The final Budget achieves roughly $31 million in personal service and non-personal service savings related to actions which include the implementation of administrative efficiencies, the restructuring of service capacity, and the annualization of negotiated collective bargaining savings. These savings are offset by growth for modest inflationary increases to base operations, anticipated growth in the OMH Sex Offender Treatment Program (SOTP) census, and fringe benefit rates.
