Western New York Reinvestment and Planning Progress

OMH has made funding available for the counties served by Western New York Children’s Psychiatric Center and the Buffalo Psychiatric Center in an annualized amount of $5.6 million. Pre-investment resources will support services in several programmatic areas including Supported Housing, HCBS Waiver, State-operated community service expansion, and Aid to Localities. The geographic and programmatic specifications for the services funded in this region that are listed below were determined through on-going consultation with community stakeholders, including the local governmental units (LGUs).

In addition to these Transformation Plan services, OMH and the New York State Department of Health are funding the following services with $1.1 million in reinvestment funds associated with the closure of inpatient psychiatric units at Medina Memorial Hospital and St. James Mercy Hospital:
