Partnerships are highly encouraged in both the BHCIP and CCE projects to encourage innovative, comprehensive local and regional approaches. Sustainability of such partnerships for BHCIP must be ensured via an executed contract between the facility and Medi-Cal that will guarantee access by the target audience to the full complement of Medi-Cal services once the funded facility’s expansion or construction is complete. For CCE, the county may serve as a referral source, potentially provide unused real property, or match funds; however, there is not an expectation that the county be required to contribute. Documentation of efforts to engage community support is an expectation of the application process.
