Crisis Care Mobile Units Program

DHCS is releasing a funding opportunity to solicit responses from California county or city behavioral health agencies, or joint applications of city or county behavioral health agencies to support and expand behavioral health mobile crisis and non-crisis services through the Crisis Care Mobile Units (CCMU) Program.

DHCS is offering two separate tracks of funding. Applicants may apply for either Track 1 or Track 2 funding, but not both:

  • Track 2 – Implementation grants for up to $1 million for each new or expanded CCMU team.

The total funding amount available for this project is $205 million. $150 million will be available for infrastructure development and support from September 15, 2021 through June 30, 2025 and $55 million will be available for direct services or infrastructure from September 15, 2021 through February 14, 2023.
