Purpose

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will provide funding for mental health and substance use treatment providers to overcome barriers towards achieving and maintaining high COVID-19 testing rates in North Carolina.

Activities should include:

  • Develop and implement strategies to address consumer hesitancy around testing. Ensure access for specific community populations to address long standing systematic health and social inequities that have put some consumers at increased risk of getting COVID-19 or having severe illness.
  • Testing for staff and consumers in shelters, group homes, residential treatment facilities, day programs, and room and board programs
  • Installing temporary structures, leasing of properties, and retrofitting facilities as necessary to support COVID-19 testing and mitigation
  • Create space for quarantine and other COVID-19 mitigation strategies by utilizing funds to support staffing/space allocation for units specific to either COVID or non-COVID areas for behavioral health patients
