(This amendment adds $800,000 each year from the general fund to support an additional Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) team in Norfolk. A PACT team is a specific model of intensive services which is comprised typically of 10 professionals including a psychiatrist and nurse, as well as case managers and peer support specialists who provide home-based care to chronically homeless persons. This request would assist Norfolk in implementing the "My Own Place" project by addressing the service needs of 85 chronically homeless adults with serious mental illness. The Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services currently funds several PACT teams across the state, including Norfolk.)
