Supplemental Block Grant and FMAP Funding

Recent federal legislation provides supplemental funding to mental health services through time-limited expansions of:

  • Community Mental Health Services (CMHS) Block Grant
  • Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) share of funds for Medicaid programs

The Office of Mental Health (OMH) will be working with community stakeholders to identify opportunities for these funds to best meet unmet prevention, treatment, and recovery needs for people with or at risk of serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbance.
