GBA Assists Health Centers with SUD-MH Expansion Funding
Updated: Jul 12, 2022
Gary Bess Associates facilitated submission of several applications for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) to expand patient access to quality substance use disorder and mental health services, advancing evidence-based strategies including expanded medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services. Funding will add staffing, supplies, and equipment necessary for FQHCs to increase their ability to combat one of the country’s greatest current health crises – opioid overuse and dependency. These applications are tapping into $350 million in new funding that has been made available by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is expected to be granted in September.
