Updated: Sep 8, 2023

Although the federal government helped implement 988, ongoing funding relies heavily on local and state money. Six states have enacted legislation to fund crisis services through telecom fees, including California, Colorado, Minnesota, Nevada, Virginia and Washington state, while others are pursuing such fees.
