North Carolina Awarded Grant to Improve Behavioral Healthcare

Yesterday, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) announced the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is awarding the state of North Carolina a $1 million, one-year planning grant. The grant will allow North Carolina to compete for a slot in the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) demonstration program. Funding for this grant comes from the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act that Senator Tillis helped negotiate and pass into law.
