Trump Administration’s $2.275 million Community Facilities loan investment has the potential to impact 229,000 rural Appalachian Ohioans
U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development State Director David L. Hall was on hand today to commemorate the grand opening of Allwell Behavioral Health Services’ USDA-funded facility in Coshocton.
“Today’s celebration acknowledges the efforts of a determined team of professionals who set their sights on ensuring the rural citizens they serve have access to quality behavioral health care,” said Hall. “From the very beginning of our partnership with Allwell, the Ohio Rural Development staff and I have looked forward to this day, and we’re so proud to stand alongside you in support of the people of Coshocton, Guernsey, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Perry Counties.
“Under the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Perdue, USDA has been working tirelessly to be a strong partner to rural Ohio in building stronger and healthier communities, because we know when rural America thrives, all of America thrives.”
A December 2018 investment from USDA’s Community Facilities Loan and Grant program helped finance the construction of Allwell’s new, 11,500-square-foot building at 710 Main Street, Coshocton. A private, non-profit organization, Allwell provides comprehensive community mental health and addiction treatment services in a six-county region of Appalachian Ohio. The new space incorporates treatment areas, telemedicine services, and administrative offices under one roof in a safe, modern facility. You may learn more about Allwell by visiting www.allwell.org.
