SAMHSA funding opportunity: CCBHC Expansion grants
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is accepting applications for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics Expansion grants. The purpose of this program is to increase access to and improve the quality of community mental and substance use disorder treatment services through the expansion of CCBHCs. CCBHCs provide person- and family-centered integrated services. The CCBHC Expansion grant program must provide access to services including 24/7 crisis intervention services for individuals with serious mental illness or SUDs, including opioid use disorders; children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance; and individuals with co-occurring mental and substance disorders. SAMHSA expects that this program will provide comprehensive 24/7 access to community-based mental and SUD services; treatment of co-occurring disorders; and physical healthcare in one single location. New York was one of 24 states that had been awarded an initial one-year grant.
SAMHSA plans to issue 98 grants of up to $2,000,000 per year for up to two years. Applications are due March 10. Contact: Victoria Aufiero
