    Funding to offset financial losses that providers experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic

    Baltimore, MD – The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today announced nearly $8 million in emergency funding to support the state’s four residential treatment centers and to mitigate financial losses they incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding, made available through the American Rescue Plan Act, will help ensure critical services are provided to children and adolescents enrolled in Medicaid.
