Crisis Care Mobile Units (CCMU) Tribal Vehicle Funding RFA and Informational Webinar:
The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is releasing this Request for Applications (RFA) for tribal entities to expand access to crisis and non-crisis behavioral health care through the provision of infrastructure funding for vehicles and related costs. Funding for the RFA is part of Round 1 of the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) for mobile crisis and non-crisis care mobile units. Awards are subject to the availability of funding.
DHCS will accept applications only from California tribal entities providing behavioral health mobile crisis and non-crisis services. “Tribal entity” is defined as a federally recognized Indian Tribe, tribal organization, or urban Indian organization, as defined in Section 1603 of Title 25 of the United States Code. Behavioral health services include mental health and/or substance use services: prevention, treatment, and recovery support services, including culturally relevant healing practices and services. If your agency is currently serving tribal members, unless you are a Tribal entity, as defined above, you are not eligible for this funding.
