A local government health department
operates a community mental health centre. The centre’s basic occupancy costs
(e.g. rents, utilities) are paid by the local government. However, its services
are financed by grants. Currently, there are two programmes. The Clinic is
financed by a multi-year state grant, and the Community Outreach programme is
paid for by a federal grant. Today the centre’s executive director received
three letters. The health department wants to reduce the centre’s budget by 20
per cent. The state is cutting its grant by 30 per cent, and the federal grant
programme is being phased out in two years. Advise the executive director what
to do and how to go about it.
