Behavioral Health Integration Grants

​What is the Proposition 56 Value-Based Purchasing for Behavioral Health Integration Incentive Projects Grant?


The 2019 California Budget Act authorized $140 million in state funds ($70 million of which is from Proposition 56 tobacco tax revenue) over three years to implement the Behavioral Health Integration Incentive Program. The intent of these funds is to improve physical and behavioral health outcomes, care delivery efficiency and patient experience by expanding fully integrated care with managed care plans provider network, using culturally and linguistically appropriate providers with expertise in primary care, substance use disorder and mental health conditions.
