DHCS Providing Access and Transforming Health (PATH) Funding for CalAIM Justice‑Involved Program

On July 13, 2022, DHCS released a draft guidance memo for Round 2 of the PATH Justice-Involved Capacity Building Program. PATH is a $1.44 billion program approved under the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) initiative. It provides transitional funding to invest in providers, counties, community-based organizations (CBOs), and other partners to support the state’s efforts to maintain, build, and scale the capacity necessary to support and implement key initiatives under CalAIM.

California received funding to support implementation activities focused on pre-release Medi-Cal eligibility and enrollment, as part of the statewide justice-involved initiative. Funding for the PATH Justice-Involved Capacity Building Program will support collaborative planning as well as information technology (IT) system modifications necessary to implement pre-release Medi-Cal application and suspension processes. This program will provide two rounds of funding totaling $151 million for correctional agencies, correctional institutions, and county social service departments.

Eligible entities can apply for Round 1 funding, using the fillable application template, until July 31, 2023.
