This round will fund $430,000,000 in projects and expand crisis and behavioral health (mental health and substance use disorder) infrastructure across the state. The focus of this round of BHCIP funding was determined in part by the statewide needs assessment that identified significant gaps in the availability of crisis services and supported an organized continuum of crisis services to reduce emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and incarceration.
