Local school children in need of mental health treatment will likely have to wait for help.

Efforts to get an $8.5 million grant to provide such treatment are on shaky ground.

The grant application process came to a halt when Erie County Commissioners said the well is going dry. They say they don't want to worry about the grant's future requirement of matching funds in these tough economic times.
