Another 10 million euros arriving from the Sicilian Region to the Municipalities for the hospitalization of people with mental disabilities. These are funds that are in addition to the 7.5 million already allocated at the beginning of August. In total, 17.5 million euros are available for the payment of fees for the stay in the housing communities of 2,263 psychic disabled registered on the island, divided by two decrees (the first of 12 million and 484 thousand euros and the second of 5 million) of the Regional Department of the Family. The expenditure for the maintenance of these people in alternative family structures to hospitals is up to the municipalities, but often it is too heavy a burden for the budgets of local authorities. Thus, the Region, through the regional department of the Family and social policies, intervenes in support of the Municipalities, also in consideration of the growth of the phenomenon of social unease in recent years.
