California MAT Access Points Project: Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act Telehealth Expansion Project
Email correspondence should have the subject line "Telehealth RFA Question."
The California MAT Access Points Project provides funding to develop, enhance, and/or expand telehealth infrastructure to address the needs of individuals with substance use disorder and/or mental health disorders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are two individual funding opportunities:
- Substance Use Disorder Telehealth Activities
- Mental Health Telehealth Activities
Funding may be used for:
- Software licenses (including EHR)
- Internet subscription
- Cellular telephones
- Provider-focused telehealth training
If the number of applications received exceeds the total available funding, priority will be given to providers in counties with the highest mortality rates related to SUD and mental health disorders and to providers who serve patients in predominantly rural areas.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit substance use disorder and/or mental health providers licensed and/or certified by California Department of Health Care Services as of July 1, 2021. Organizations must have a current contract with the county Behavioral Health Department and currently serve safety net clients.
Sites may request up to $100,000 under each funding opportunity. The project period is one year.
