Okla. to get $5M in child welfare services grants

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma is to receive more than $5 million in federal grants to help fund services for foster children and families.

The Oklahoma Department of Human Services is getting $3.2 million to fund a 5-year project to provide mental and behavioral health services for children, youth and families. Several agencies are to partner with the department in providing the services.

A $2 million grant is being awarded to NorthCare for a 3-year program to provide care coordination to foster families in Oklahoma County.

Both projects are to support the state's child welfare improvement plan known as the Pinnacle Plan.
