BPHC Bulletin: REMINDER: Submit Your IBHS Application – Deadline extended to Monday, May 20

bphc health center program bulletin

Dear Health Center Program Colleagues,

Last year, the Health Center Program provided behavioral health services to two million patients, including many who are struggling with addiction. The Health Center Program plays an essential role in providing high-quality, integrated behavioral health care.  

But our work is not done yet. 

This year, HRSA has $200 million in supplemental funding for Integrated Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) to support this important effort. Every health center is eligible to apply.

Thanks to all of those who have already submitted, and for those that have not done so already, I encourage you to submit an application in HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) by Monday, May 20, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Visit the IBHS technical assistance (TA) webpage for more information and contact the IBHS TA Team with questions.

Thank you for all you do!
