Applications are now open for fiscal year 2017 grants to promote the integration of behavioral and primary care.
The grants — awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration — allow states to work with qualified community health programs to:
- fully integrate and collaborate clinical practices in the two areas of care; and
- promote screening, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment for mental health and substance use disorders.
A total of $110 million will be awarded, with up to 11 awardees receiving up to $2 million annually for one to five years. The grants are open to states collaborating with at least one qualified community health program or at least one community health center. Applications are due May 17.
