Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Funding for Health Centers

As part of HHS's efforts to fight the national opioid epidemic, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded $200 million in Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) supplemental funding to 1,178 health centers nation-wide. Health centers use AIMS funding to expand access to critical mental health services and substance abuse services focusing on the treatment, prevention, and awareness of opioid abuse. The AIMS funding was awarded to health centers in September 2017 and covers 12-month budget periods from January 2018 through June 2018. AIMS funding can be used to increase mental health and substance abuse services personnel, leverage health information technology, and provide additional training. We will determine whether health centers used their AIMS funding in accordance with Federal requirements and grant terms.
