NYS Council CCBHC Demo Agencies Workgroup Mtg
November 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
The NYS Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare is pleased to announce the launch of two workgroups designed to support our members who currently
participate in, or who want to become involved in the CCBHC Program in New York State.
To increase communication between NYS Council CCBHC Demo agencies, to share lessons learned, and to plan and implement advocacy that will resolve problems with the initiative, the NYS Council will host a statewide workgroup for the federal CCBHC Demo agencies within our membership. The first meeting of this workgroup will take place on November 10 from 10:30 – 11:30 via Zoom.
In addition to the federal Demo Program, over the past 3 years SAMHSA has awarded a total of 48 CCBHC Expansion Grants to eligible providers in NYS.
Awardees receive a subsidy to establish services that resemble CCBHC programs and services; however, the Expansion Grants are limited in terms of award amount and duration.
To increase the likelihood of success of NYS Council member agencies with current Expansion Grants, and to educate potential applicants regarding the Program, the NYS Council will host a statewide workgroup to support these providers. The first meeting of this workgroup will take place on November 14 from 10-11:00 am via Zoom.
