Behavioral Health e-Memo



Facilitating provider access to relief funds

National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) and the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) are working with SAMHSA to improve the opportunities for providers of mental health and substance use disorder services to access pandemic relief funds.

To facilitate relief funding for behavioral health providers, the Minnesota Department of Human Services is asked to gather information to transmit to SAMHSA.

If you are a mental health or substance use disorder service provider, please go to our survey site, where you will enter your:

  1. Organization Name
  2. Tax ID Number

Approximately $15 billion will go to eligible Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) providers that participate in state Medicaid and CHIP programs and that have not already received funds from the Provider Relief Fund. These payments will not be made automatically.

Questions? Contact Neerja Singh, Deputy Director, Behavioral Health, DHS
