Investment in Mental Health Wellness Grant Program for Children and Youth (CY Grant Program)
In 2016, Senate Bill 833 (Section 20) expanded the Investment in Mental Health Wellness Act to specifically address a continuum of crisis services for children and youth, 21 years of age and under and allocated funding to develop four mental health programs - crisis residential treatment, crisis stabilization, mobile crisis support teams and family respite care.
The grants from the California Health Facilities Financing Authority (CHFFA) will be disbursed to California counties or to their nonprofit or public agency designees to support capital improvement, expansion and limited start-up costs.
