NADCP is pleased to share information on new grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to increase access to and improve the quality of community mental health and substance use disorder treatment services. NADCP encourages treatment providers and clinics that serve treatment courts (especially adult, family, and juvenile drug treatment courts) to apply.
These grants are designated for the expansion of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) so that these clinics can provide person- and family-centered integrated services, including 24/7 crisis intervention services for individuals with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders; children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance; and individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. SAMHSA expects that these grants will provide comprehensive, 24/7 access to community-based mental health and substance use disorder services, treatment of co-occurring disorders, and physical healthcare in a single location.
Available grant funding totals approximately $197 million. SAMHSA will award grants of up to $2 million per year for up to two years, and expects to make more than 90 such grant awards. Applications due by Tuesday, March 10, 2020.
