For behavioral health directors

The California Department of Health Care Services and Department of Social Services are launching two new programs to support infrastructure projects: the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) and the Community Care Expansion (CCE) Program. 

These investments will ensure behavioral health care can be provided in the least restrictive settings by creating a wide range of options, including outpatient alternatives, urgent care, peer respite, wellness centers, and social rehabilitation models.  

Applicants are encouraged to collaborate at the local level and apply for both the BHCIP and the CCE programs when developing infrastructure efforts. Both funding opportunities afford counties, tribal entities, nonprofits, for-profit organizations, and private developers the ability to expand the entire continuum of care for individuals with behavioral health conditions and long-term care support needs.
