Sandy Hook Fund to cap some mental health assistance payouts

The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation plans to start capping payouts for out-of-pocket costs for mental health and other alternative post-traumatic treatments.  The Newtown Bee reports that while the immediate victims of 12-14 will continue to be served on an "as needed" basis within current limitations, the cap will be put in place for local families who initially applied for or are currently receiving compensation from the fund. 

 

A letter was sent to that group of people saying that change in the financial support is necessary based on recommendations by the Sandy Hook School Support Fund Distribution Committee. 

 

The changes take effect on January 1st.
