CCBHC Demonstration Program
Twenty-five million dollars in planning grants were available to states to develop applications to participate in a two-year CCBHC demonstration program. Only states awarded a planning grant are eligible to apply for the demonstration program grant. Oregon applied for, and was awarded a planning grant, as the program aligns with the state's broader health care transformation efforts, enabling Oregon to further advance behavioral health care for Oregonians. The Oregon Health Authority subsequently submitted an application to SAMHSA to be considered for participation in the 2017-2019 CCBHC Demonstration Program. In December 2016, Oregon was selected as one of eight demonstration states.
A CCBHC Demonstration Advisory Group will begin meeting the first quarter in 2017 and will be comprised of diverse stakeholders from across Oregon, representing providers, consumers, policy makers, health plans and professional associations.
