Local Developmental Disability Service Providers To Receive State Funding
Governor Andrew Cuomo says $10 million in awards will be handed to non-profit behavioral health and developmental disability service providers to help improve and develop their technological infrastructure. These awards will be used by providers to strengthen information technology operations as New York State continues the transition to Medicaid Managed Care for Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability healthcare. This funding, secured in the 2015-16 Enacted Budget and awarded by a Request for Proposal process, will be used by providers to purchase technology upgrades including hardware, software and services. The monies can also be used to educate staff on how to better use health information management systems. Locally, $50,000 will go to Springbrook, Catholic Charities of Chenango County, and the Arc of Delaware County. Pathfinder Village was awarded a little over $45,000.
