    Dear Association Executives - This evening, SAMHSA released two announcements regarding Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). There were two Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) released. The two NOFOs have eligibility differences summarized below:

    1. Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) – Planning, Development, and Implementation Grants (CCBHC-PDI Grants) for new CCBHC applicants to apply for $1M per year for 4 years.
    2. Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC)– Improvement and Advancement Grants (CCBHC-IA Grants) for existing CCBHC Medicaid Demonstration Program sites; existing CCBHC-Expansion grant recipients; or an organization that has been certified by the state as a CCBHC to apply for $1M per year for 4 years.

    Below and attached, please see the chart we created that outlines both of the NOFO. We will continue to look into the details of each and will follow up with more information but wanted to get this information out to you urgently. Please feel free to share this with your members.

    Description

    The purpose of this program is to help to transform community behavioral health systems and provide comprehensive, coordinated behavioral health care by establishing new CCBHC programs. CCBHCs provide person- and family-centered integrated services. The intent of the CCBHC-PDI grant program is to (a) assist organizations in the planning for and development and implementation of a CCBHC that meets the CCBHC Certification Criteria (PDF | 755 KB), (b) provide a comprehensive range of outreach, screening, assessment, treatment, care coordination, and recovery supports based on a needs assessment that aligns with the CCBHC Certification Criteria, and (c) support recovery from mental illness and/or substance use disorders (SUD) by providing access to high-quality mental health and SUD services, regardless of an individual's ability to pay. This includes any individual with a mental or substance use disorder who seeks care, including those with serious mental illness (SMI), substance use disorder (SUD) including opioid use; children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance (SED); individuals with co-occurring mental and substance disorders (COD); and individuals experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. SAMHSA expects that applicants will include a focus on groups facing health disparities, as identified in the community needs assessment in the population of focus.
