BHCIP Launch Ready Questions
We received a Round 2 Planning grant. Are we allowed to use funds from that to pay for contracted services to work on the application for this or other BHCIP rounds or the CCE Capital Expansion grant?
Yes. Funds from a BHCIP Planning grant may be used to pay contract writers to respond to this and other BHCIP infrastructure grants, and to the CCE Capital Expansion grant.
No. This round of funding is focused on infrastructure, meaning buildings and related facilities. Although new vehicles may be part of a facility’s capital improvement, in this context they are not included.

Our organization applied for but did not receive Round 2 Planning grant funds. Are we still eligible to apply for a Launch Ready grant?
We have already received funding through one of the other rounds of BHCIP grants. Are we allowed to apply for this funding as well?
Yes. Recipients of Crisis Care Mobile Units (Round 1) and County and Tribal Planning (Round 2) grants are eligible to apply for a Launch Ready (Round 3) grant.
For purposes of BHCIP Round 3 funding, a project is defined as “launch ready” when some essential pre-development design, planning, site control, and budgeting details have been professionally formalized and the project meets the minimum requirements listed below, but...
