Mecklenburg County is requesting funding through the Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Community Reinvestment Program to develop and open a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) for female adolescents, in partnership with an identified child mental health provider [subcontract] in the community.  The PRTF will provide non-acute inpatient facility care for NC Medicaid (Medicaid) beneficiaries who have mental illness, possible concomitant mild intellectual challenges or a substance use disorder, and need 24-hour supervision and gender-specific specialized intervention.  This 6-bed facility will serve females between 13 and 21 years of age. The funding will be used to retrofit an existing facility for this population, as well as, to engage in consultation and evaluation from best practice experts.










Increase in other revenue and related expense in the General Fund up to $1.5 million, with the final RFP request to be adjusted for anticipated Medicaid reimbursements.
