The Evidence-Based Tele-Behavioral Health Network Program provides funding to use telehealth networks to increase access to behavioral healthcare services in rural and frontier communities and to conduct evaluations of those efforts to establish an evidence-base for assessing the effectiveness of tele-behavioral healthcare for patients, providers, and payers.

  • Mental health
  • Substance abuse, particularly opioid abuse

Eligible applicants include:

  • Domestic public or private nonprofit entities
