In an email on May 10, 2012, Gary Parker reported to the CAC Board members the following:
|I am pleased to report that everyone’s hard work has paid off. In other words, I have wonderful news!!!!!!!!!!!!Although there will be some expectations to what we will need to do with this funding, it has been announced to the GMHSPC Exec Board yesterday that the CAC has received its $150,000 legislative line item!
Again, there will be some requirements that I am not aware of yet, but this is exciting news! We do need to seriously focus next month on discussions about the Recovery Conference. I will have some proposed budgets (hopefully) ready.
Just as a reminder, this is only $150,000. In the past, we received $260,000 from SRS. The missing $110,000 funded the Recovery Conference. So, we are going to have to be creative to make this smaller budget work (and we will)!
Again, thanks to everyone for your hard work, and now, more hard work (but exciting times) ahead!Gary J. Parker, CPS Executive Director Kansas Consumer Advisory Council for Adult Mental Health, Inc.
