North Carolina Virtual Behavioral Services Grant Program

North Carolina Office of Rural Health
Jul 22, 2022

The Virtual Behavioral Health Services Grant Program will provide funding to hospitals in North Carolina to expand their capacity to provide telepsychiatry services in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Telepsychiatry services will allow primary care patients to access hospital-based virtual psychiatric assessments and consultations from a primary care office, from home, or from another nonhospital setting.

Projects should be designed with equity in mind and target historically underserved, marginalized or adversely affected groups, economically disadvantaged communities, or rural and underserved communities.


All North Carolina-based hospitals are eligible to apply. Applicant hospitals should have behavioral health programs that can be expanded to include virtual services in primary care settings, from home, or from another non-hospital setting.
