    The Consortium is developing recommendations for a Call for Proposals (RFP) to be issued by the CHRC in spring/summer

    2023.  Grant funding will be provided for both fiscal year 2023 ($50 million) and fiscal year 2024 ($85 million).  The RFP will be posted on the CHRC's website. 

    Coordination with Local School Districts:  Schools and school districts will not be eligible to receive direct grant funding, but will be involved in local Partnerships and could receive staff training and support.  All grant applicants must have a letter of support from their Local Education Agency (LEA).  For more information about the role of schools and school districts, click HERE​.

    Grants to service providers:  Students need services now.  The goal of the first RFP is to have new/expanded programming in place during 2023-2024 school year.  For the first RFP, service providers will be eligible for direct grant funding from the CHRC to deliver behavioral health and related services to students and families.  

    ​Service providers should submit grant applications to cover activities that are not Medicaid-reimbursable and use grant funds to fill in the “gaps."  Grants will be awarded competitively.  Grant funding must be supplemental to and may not supplant existing fund for school behavioral health.
