CHFFA to Hold Information Sessions on Mental Health Wellness Act Grants

The Mental Health Wellness Act of 2013, signed into law this year by the Governor, authorizes the California Health Facilities Financing Authority (CHFFA) to enhance community crisis services for individuals with mental illnesses. CHFFA will offer grants for the development, capital, equipment acquisition, and applicable program startup or expansion costs that support services for individuals with mental health disorders. To assist grant applicants as they prepare to apply for funding, CHFFA will hold a series of informational sessions at multiple sites between Dec. 3 and Dec. 12. The Dec. 3 session is also a webinar; all others are in-person meetings to be held in Sacramento, Redding, Riverside, Oakland and Fresno.
