Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics Planning Grant

Effective Planning Within Time Constraints 

Congratulations on receiving a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) planning grant. As a planning grant awardee, you are eligible to apply for and, if selected, join the CCBHC Medicaid Demonstration (Demonstration) starting July 1, 2024. It is imperative to develop an infrastructure that promotes a CCBHC model of care that is both sustainable and repeatable. States must implement several key deliverables simultaneously between March 2023 and March 2024, which requires careful planning. States that do not meet these milestones jeopardize their ability to apply for the Demonstration.
