(Providence-AP) -- Rhode Island is receiving nearly 500-thousand dollars in grant money to help victims of The Station nightclub fire.
   The money comes from the federal Department of Health and Human Services.
   Governor Carcieri says the money will be used to fund the state's ongoing efforts to provide mental health treatment to victims of the February 20th fire.
   The funds will be used for programs that address ongoing mental health and substance abuse needs of victims, family members and first responders.
   The money will also support the Outreach and Intervention Team at Kent County Memorial Hospital.
   The fire in West Warwick killed 100 people and injured nearly 200 others.
