2016 CCBHC Planning Grant Archive Information

This page contains archived information from the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) Planning Grant stage of the project. Please use this information as a resource.

Congress passed the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (H.R. 4302) in March 2014. This legislation includes provisions of the Excellence in Mental Health Act — an eight-state demonstration program and the single largest investment in community behavioral health in more than 50 years. This legislation aims to improve quality and access to behavioral health services through the creation of federal criteria for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). Twenty-five million dollars in planning grants was available to states assist with planning grant activities focusing on the development of a CCBHC demonstration application. Oregon applied for, and was awarded a planning grant on October 19, 2015.

A 2016 CCBHC Planning Grant Advisory Group was established in January 2016 comprised of diverse stakeholders from across Oregon, representing providers, consumers, policy makers, health plans and professional associations. The Advisory Group was active between January - October 2016.
