In November 2017, Washtenaw County residents voted two-to-one in favor of an eight-year millage that would generate $5 - $6 million per year for mental health and public safety improvements beginning in January 2019. In passing this historic millage, the residents of Washtenaw County made it abundantly clear that in this county, no one is alone.
Building on this spirit of community, administrators of millage funds made it a priority to include a wide range of stakeholders in the decision making process and to build upon the strengths of our behavioral health service providers and public safety partners to ensure that every county resident has access to the help they need, when they need it--regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay for service.

Washtenaw County is one of the only counties in Michigan to pass a millage like this--a fact for which we are deeply grateful. This year, and in the years ahead, we look forward to strengthening our county in ways we would have never thought possible. Thank you, Washtenaw County residents.
