Crisis Care Mobile Units Program Grant

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Crisis Care Mobile Units (CCMU) program provides funding for California county, city, or tribal entity behavioral health authorities to implement new and enhanced CCMUs. The CCMU program integrates funds from two sources:

  • $150 million of state general funds that are part of the Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP). These funds are available for behavioral health authorities to develop infrastructure that supports mobile crisis units that are not available through other sources.
  • $55 million in DHCS funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).

The CCMU RFA funding opportunity has led to more than $157 million distributed to 51 behavioral health authorities. The awards are being used to create or enhance 237 mobile crisis response teams throughout California.
