New: Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) Round 5 Program Update
October 6, 2022
Last week, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released the BHCIP Round 5: Crisis and Behavioral Health Continuum Grant Program Update ahead of opening the request for application later this month. This round will fund $480 million in projects that will serve to expand infrastructure capacity for crisis and/or behavioral health continuum facility projects. Eligible applicants may include counties, cities, tribal entities, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations, whose projects reflect the state’s priorities.
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 Crisis and Behavioral Health Continuum Grant is the fifth round of six total rounds of funding. Additional information on BHCIP Round 5, including an upcoming searchable FAQ, can be found on the dedicated BCHIP webpage.
