Medication Grant Program evolved
from the 1999 legislation known as Kendra’s Law. The law authorized
county Mental Hygiene Directors to receive grants that
enable mentally ill individuals that are released from
jail and prisons or discharged from hospitals to purchase
psychotropic medications for up to 90 days, while a
Medicaid application is pending. This program
also allows the client to receive one outpatient visit
for medication management, at no cost.
