(This amendment reduces funding by $2.0 million from the general fund in fiscal year 2018 for the costs of providing same day access to assessment services at Community Services Boards. A companion amendment in Item 306 expands eligibility to mental health and substance abuse treatment services for the GAP program, which provides certain Medicaid services to individuals with serious mental illness. It is anticipated that this expansion will reduce the demand for same day access to assessment services and provide the needed services to address individuals who would otherwise be in need of services from CSBs.)
