Richland and Ashland Counties each receive $56,400 from the state's "Strong Families, Safe Communities" grant program, as its portion of a $600,000 award to a group of eleven counties.

The grant was announced Wednesday during a news conference at the Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board office.

This funding program results from Governor John Kasich deciding more money must be allocated for local mental health services for troubled youth. Richland County's efforts will focus on the 8 to 24 age group, and its program will be administered by the Youth and Family Council which actively seeks grant funding.

Richland and Ashland Counties were added to the "Strong Families, Safe Communities" grant program as it expanded for its second year.
