SAMHSA_Web_IconThe Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) is accepting applications for the FY 2018 Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) Expansion Grants program.

The purpose of the program is to increase access to and improve the quality of community behavioral health services through the expansion of CCBHCs. CCBHCs provide person- and family-centered services and are available in the 24 states that participated in the FY 2016 Planning Grants for CCBHCs program. The grant recipient must provide access to services for individuals with serious mental illness or substance addiction, including opioid addiction; children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance; and individuals with co-occurring disorders. SAMHSA expects that this program will improve the behavioral health of individuals across the nation by providing comprehensive community-based mental and substance addiction services; treating co-occurring disorders; advancing the integration of behavioral health with physical health care; and assimilating and using evidence-based practices on a more consistent basis.

Learn more and apply. Applications are due by July 9.
