This ordinance also authorizes a contract with Mental Health America of Ohio (MHAOhio) for $66,000.00, for the provision of Maternal and Child health grant program services.

The MCHP grant provides peer support person-centered wellness projects. The Peer Support Person-Centered Wellness objective provides support for planning and assessing the peer support systems and screening tools (behavioral and/or physical health) available within a designated target area or region that support pregnant and/or post-partum women within one year of pregnancy in year 1.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency to continue the support of all activities for the Maternal and Child Health grant program.
