Rep. Jerome Moon secures $700,000 for Centerstone Military Services

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – State Rep. Jerome Moon, R-Maryville, has secured $700,000 in state funding to benefit Centerstone Military Services.

The grant will be used to provide professional behavior health services for veterans, reservists and National Guard members and their families across Tennessee. The funds may also be used within the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone in Clarksville.

“It’s important that we give back to the men and women who served the United States,” Moon said. “These funds will help active and retired military members get the services and support they need to address serious health conditions. As a veteran, I was proud to be a part of securing these funds and I thank my colleagues for backing such an important mission.”

Centerstone Military Services ensures veterans and their families have access to quality care that treats conditions service members frequently face, including anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The organization has a nationwide network of providers and support.

The appropriated funds are part of a $52.8 billion zero-debt balanced budget that was passed by the General Assembly in April. Republican priorities include significant investments in rural and behavioral health care, school safety, education and public safety.

State Rep. Jerome Moon represents House District 8, which includes part of Blount County. He is chairman of the Cities and Counties Subcommittee and also serves on the Commerce Committee, Finance, Ways and Means Committee, Local Government Committee, and the Elections and Campaign Finance Subcommittee.
