Today! Call your Iowa Senators $9.5 Million for children's mental health
April 20, 2022
There's still time to help secure $9.5 million in critical funding for Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) in Iowa by contacting influential state senators now before budgets are finalized. Providers in Iowa, including Orchard Place, have asked the state legislature for $3 million in rate relief (which would leverage $6 and a half million in federal dollars). Iowa's reimbursement rates for this mental health service that supports youth and families in their homes have not increased in 8 years putting BHIS programs at risk. Find out how a 2-minute phone call or email from you to key policy makers could make all the difference.
