Audits of SAMHSA's Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic Expansion Grants
Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) are designed to provide comprehensive 24/7 access to: (1) community-based mental health and substance use disorder services, (2) treatment of co-occurring disorders, and (3) physical health care in one location. In Federal fiscal year 2020, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) awarded CCBHC expansion grants totaling approximately $450 million to increase access to and improve the quality of community mental health and substance use disorder treatment services through direct services. This included $250 million appropriated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. We will determine whether SAMHSA followed its policies and procedures for awarding and monitoring CCBHC expansion grants. In a separate audit, we will determine whether CCBHCs used expansion grant funds in accordance with Federal requirements and applicable grant terms.
