DHCS released a Request for Application (RFA) seeking proposals for the first round of grant funding to expand evidence-based and community-defined evidence practices (EBPs and CDEPs, respectively). For the first round of EBP/CDEP grant funding, DHCS seeks proposals from various individuals, organizations, and agencies to scale parent and caregiver support and training services to parents, caregivers, and children and youth with emerging or existing mental health and/or substance use disorders.
Interested parties are encouraged to apply for funding using this application form by January 31, 2023, at 5 p.m.
On January 13 and 20, from 2 to 3 p.m., DHCS will virtually host webinars (advance registration required) on behalf of the CYBHI Evidence-Based and Community-Defined Evidence Practices grants program. These webinars will focus on the Round One: Parent and Caregiver Programs and Practices RFA. DHCS’ intent is to provide technical assistance by sharing responses to frequently asked questions received based on themes. During the webinars, DHCS will not address any live questions. Please email questions related to the round one to CYBHI@dhcs.ca.gov. DHCS will post the FAQs to the CYBHI webpage by January 9.
