Children and Youth Behavioral Infrastructure Funding Applications Due August 31
June 30, 2022
Earlier this month, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released a Request for Application for the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) Round 4: Children and Youth. This round will fund $480.5 million in projects that will expand the behavioral health continuum of treatment and service resources in settings that serve Californians ages 25 and younger, including pregnant and postpartum women and their children, and transition-age youth, along with their families.
Authorized through the 2021-22 state budget, BHCIP provides $2.2 billion to construct, acquire, and expand properties and invest in mobile crisis infrastructure related to behavioral health. The Children and Youth round of funding is the fourth of six rounds of requests for applications. Last week, CSAC reported on over $500 million in grant funding awarded to counties as part of Round 3 of BHCIP.
Eligible applicants, including counties, must submit completed applications by August 31. Additional information on how to apply, including FAQs and webinars, can be found on the BHCIP Round 4: Children and Youth webpage.
