Crisis Care Mobile Units Program Grant

The Crisis Care Mobile Units (CCMU) program grants are being awarded to California county, city, or tribal entity behavioral health authorities to implement or expand Crisis Care Mobile Units (CCMUs).

As a grantee, you will have the opportunity to plan or implement a new mobile crisis unit or expand or improve an existing program.

The CCMU program integrates funds from two sources with different allowable uses:

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

The California Department of Health Care Services has contracted with Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP), to serve as the administrator of the CCMU program. In addition to funding for planning and implementation, AHP will provide technical assistance and peer network convenings to help you accomplish your goals.
