Resources for Planning New SBHCs

Any community may choose to plan for an SBHC. The SBHC State Program Office (SPO) sometimes has state planning grants available to support the planning and implementation of a new SBHC, however at this time no planning grant funding is available.

For more information about planning new SBHCs, SPO encourages communities to contact the SBHC State Program Office at or 971-673-0871.
