VT House Greenlights Additional Money To Address Heavy DCF & DAIL Caseloads, As Well As More $ For Mental Health

"…the Department for Children and Families would receive a mid-year injection of $10.1 million because of increased caseload. The Department of Mental Health would see an additional $8.3 million and the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living would receive an additional $3 million, also because of increased caseload."

Story also notes that there is a $5 million-plus savings from the state employees’ health plan. Once again, state employees doing their part!
