The purpose of this program is to help transform community behavioral health systems and provide comprehensive, integrated, coordinated, and person-centered behavioral health care by enhancing and improving CCBHCs that currently meet the CCBHC Certification Criteria. The intent of the CCBHC-IA grant program is to improve access to community-based mental health and substance use disorder treatment and support, including 24/7 crisis services, to anyone in their service area who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay or place of residence. 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 disorder; 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.


Eligible applicants for this NOFO are (1) existing CCBHC Medicaid Demonstration Program sites; (2) existing CCBHC-Expansion grant recipients; or (3) an organization that has been certified by the state as a CCBHC.
