BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Federal money is available to Vermont to expand mobile crisis intervention services in communities and the state is seeking feedback on where and how those resources should be used.

The state currently has a yearlong grant to study how to boost mobile crisis services to help Vermonters with mental health or substance use. While the state expects to get significant money to cover Medicaid patients who use those services, state officials say they’re also looking at how to cover people with commercial insurance or Medicare.
