Round 3: Launch Ready

Through Round 3: Launch Ready, DHCS awarded 45 facilities a total of $518.5 million to construct, acquire, and rehabilitate real estate assets to expand the behavioral health continuum of treatment and service resources. Proposed projects were required to show that they had been through a planning process and were ready to get construction underway.

Round 3 is the first round of BHCIP funding to provide support for grantees to undertake actual infrastructure development. Round 3 supports nonprofit corporations, for-profit organizations, tribal entities, city and county organizations in opening residential and outpatient facilities. These include Office-Based Outpatient Treatment, Community Wellness Centers, and Adult Residential Treatment Facilities for Substance Use Disorder.

BHCIP Round 3: Launch Ready was released in a unique collaboration with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and its Community Care Expansion (CCE) Program.

Community Care Expansion (CCE) Program

The Community Care Expansion (CCE) program was established by Assembly Bill (AB) 172 (Chapter 696, of Statutes 2021) and provides funding for acquisition, construction, and rehabilitation to preserve and expand adult and senior care facilities that serve Social security Income (SSI) applicants and recipients, including those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. More information about the CCE program can be found here.
