Today: FCC Grants for Telehealth TechnologyDear Members,
The FCC established a $200m COVID-19 Telehealth Program which allows eligible providers including community mental health and substance use organizations to apply for grants to fund technology and equipment to bolster service delivery via telehealth.
The order states that our community mental health centers and others are eligible. The grant application process opens at noon today. The application portal will be accessible here.
Here is application guidance from the FCC explaining the process, eligibility and application requirements. We encourage you to make an application as soon as possible, as funding is distributed on a rolling basis.
