In September, HRSA expects to award supplemental funding to health centers that have an established partnership with organizations that are awarded through the fiscal year (FY) 2018 Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Program (HRSA-18-112). Up to 50 health centers are expected to receive $200,000 per year for two years to increase access to quality opioid use disorder and other substance use disorder treatment through behavioral health professional and paraprofessional training.
For health centers to be considered for this funding, a memorandum of agreement or understanding must be signed by the health center and included in the partnering organization’s application to HRSA-18-112 by Friday, July 6.
Health centers can access additional information, including a list of eligible BHWET applicants, on the FY 2018 Enhancing Behavioral Health Workforce Supplemental Funding Opportunity for Health Centers Technical Assistance website.
