The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is now accepting applications for the School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) Behavioral Health Improvement grant. They are awarding up to nine $90,000 10-month grants to improve access to and quality of behavioral health care and services in SBHCs serving K-12 students in Washington public schools, with a focus on communities and populations who have been historically underserved.
Applications must come from the Sponsoring Health Care Agency (a health care organization such as a community clinic, hospital, health care system, public health department, federally- or locally-controlled Tribal health clinic, and/or Tribal health program) of an existing SBHC (or one that will be operational within the grant period), and projects must serve a school with a high proportion of students (60% or more) who come from a historically underserved community or population.
- For more information and to apply, visit their WA Portal page. To be considered for funding, applications must be submitted by 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on June 15, 2022.
