The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and Department of Social Services (CDSS) are pleased to announce the release of a joint Request for Applications (RFA) for the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) Launch Ready and Community Care Expansion (CCE) Program Capital Expansion Grant Funding.
California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS) infrastructure funding, alongside significant new state and federal investments in homelessness, healthcare delivery reform, and the social safety net, is addressing historic gaps in the behavioral health and long-term care continuum to meet growing demand for services and supports across the life span. The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and California Department of Social Services (CDSS) are working in tandem to design and implement 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 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. A variety of care placements can provide a vital off-ramp from intensive behavioral health service settings and transition individuals—including the most vulnerable and those experiencing or at risk of homelessness—to safe community living. Investing in adult and senior care facilities will divert Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment (SSI/SSP) and Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI) applicants and recipients from homelessness as a key part of California’s strategic multi-agency approach to increase housing options for seniors and persons with disabilities. BCHIP and CCE Capital Expansion grants are both included in the Joint Request for Applications webpage [link to: https://www.infrastructure.buildingcalhhs.com/joint-request-for-applications-rfa/].
