Grants to California organizations to provide services to individuals in eligible counties suffering from mental health or substance abuse disorders during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended for the provision of treatment and recovery support services for patients residing in Los Angeles or Riverside counties.

The Center at Sierra Health Foundation, in partnership with the California Department of Health Care Services, will award funding to provide direct treatment and recovery support services for individuals with substance use disorders and/or mental health disorders impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including support for health care providers. 

The Center at Sierra Health Foundation will assist DHCS with the administration of the funds to organizations to provide direct treatment and recovery support services, with a specific focus on telehealth. Funding must be utilized to address the needs of individuals with SUD and/or MH disorders impacted by the COVID-19 emergency, including SUD, youth, and patients with serious emotional disturbances (SED), and health care professionals and others with MH disorders less severe than serious mental illness (SMI).

There are two individual funding opportunities available:

  1. Substance Use Disorder COVID-19 Services - Funding under this opportunity must use telehealth for direct service provision and evidence-based treatment, and should include service provision for one of the following:
    • Outpatient treatment
    • Intensive outpatient treatment
    • Narcotic treatment program

  2. Mental Health COVID-19 Services - Funding under this opportunity must be allocated as follows:
    • A minimum of two-thirds of funding requested for direct services must be used to support mental health care for all individuals or patients impacted by COVID-19 with mental health disorders less severe than SMI.
    • A minimum of one-third of funding requested for direct services must be allocated for health care practitioners impacted by COVID-19 with mental health disorders less severe than SMI requiring mental health care (this can include depression, PTSD, etc.)
