This study was the first to thoroughly investigate cross-agency financing structures and strategies, and provides important information about finance policies that can assist communities across the country. The study's two primary research objectives were to test the validity of the theory that financing structures and strategies support effective systems of care and investigate how these financing components operate separately and collectively within a community and systemic context, to create effective financing policy. The study also investigated whether each financing component contributes to positive system-level outcomes.
