Gov. Kim Reynolds announced in July that $50 million of federal emergency pandemic funding would be distributed to mental health care providers across the state. The funding is part of $1.25 billion the state received in COVID-19 relief funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was enacted in late March.

Of the $50 million for mental health funding, Reynolds allocated the bulk of the funds - $30 million - on a per-capita basis to Mental Health and Disability (MHDS) regions, whose mission is to support and offer adult and children's mental health services.
