Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the award of more than $3.7 million to expand evidence-based addiction prevention services throughout New York State. Funding was awarded to providers in each of New York State’s ten economic development regions and will support prevention providers who had their services negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Family Counseling Services of Cortland County was awarded a $49-thousand grant and is expected to expand its evidence-based addiction prevention services.
The additional funds are to counter the negative impacts of COVID on these service providers.
The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) is administering this funding.
