SAMHSA Announces Planning Grants for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics

Friday, June 12, 2015

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently announced the opportunity for states to apply for one-year planning grants for the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) demonstration. The demonstration involves a two-year pilot project under which 8 states will use a prospective payment system (PPS) for CCBHCs. The grant funding available to states under this opportunity is intended to support states in certifying clinics as CCBHCs, establishing a PPS, and preparing an application for the two-year demonstration. State Behavioral Health Authorities and State Medicaid Directors have until August 5, 2015, to apply for the 1-year planning grants. Up to $2 million will be available per state for the planning grants.
