CHA Fact Sheets Show New Behavioral Health Facilities Being Built

What’s happening: To help CHA members learn about new behavioral health facilities being constructed in communities around the state, CHA has created an online document that displays the funds awarded to build various types of facilities by county.  

What else to know: Close to $2 billion in state funds have been distributed throughout California during the past two years to build new behavioral health treatment locations that will serve Medi-Cal beneficiaries.  

Under the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program, five rounds of competitive awards have been made to a wide range of provider types, including hospitals. While the state has published a dashboard of the awards online, it can be difficult to navigate. CHA’s collection of fact sheets is organized by county to make the information easier to read. Hospitals are encouraged to reach out to local organizations that received grants and learn more about new behavioral health treatment options being developed.
