Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today announced the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is awarding Franklin County a $997,966 grant to support mental health and combat substance abuse.

“I am proud to announce nearly $1 million in taxpayer dollars will be returned to Franklin County to keep our community healthy and safe,” Stefanik said. “These funds will be used to improve access and reduce barriers to quality health care for residents of the North Country at risk for mental and substance use disorders. I will continue finding ways to deliver solutions for our local mental health and substance abuse rehabilitation centers and programs.”
