Mental Health Expansion Grant: Capacity and Youth-Led Projects

The 2021 Oregon State Legislature dedicated $7.5 million to continue to support School-Based Health Center (SBHC) mental health capacity during the 2021-2023 biennium. This funding supports both Capacity Grants and Youth-Led Project Grants.

Capacity Grants

While nearly all of Oregon’s certified SBHCs offer behavioral health services, the SBHC State Program Office (SPO) awards Mental Health Expansion Grant funds to 65 SBHCs to support provider time and ensure SBHCs can continue to provide both billable and non-billable behavioral health services.

For questions about the Mental Health Expansion Grant, either capacity grants or youth-led projects, please contact or 971-278-0124.
