The purpose of CCBHC Planning Grants is to support states to develop and implement certification systems for CCBHCs, establish Prospective Payment Systems (PPS) for Medicaid reimbursable services, and prepare an application to participate in a four-year CCBHC Demonstration program. SAMHSA expects that the program will meaningfully involve consumers, youth, family members, and communities in the development, implementation, and ongoing monitoring of the state’s planning efforts to develop CCBHCs and prepare to apply for the CCBHC Demonstration. With the planning grants, SAMHSA aims to further expand opportunities for states to improve access to and delivery of coordinated, comprehensive behavioral health care through Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics.


Eligible applicants are State Mental Health Authorities (SMHAs), Single State Agencies (SSAs), or State Medicaid Agencies (SMAs) including the District of Columbia.
