Grants of $5,000 and grants of $10,000 to Louisiana nonprofit school-based and community-based health centers in eligible locations to improve health outcomes. Funding is intended to increase access to, and improve the quality of, services for patients with behavioral health conditions. Eligible applicants are located in and serve patients in Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn. The goal of the grant is to evaluate the current level of integration at each awarded health center and to develop a center-level improvement plan.
FQHCs interested in increasing the level of behavioral health integration within their centers can apply for a two-part funding opportunity. Part One is an assessment and planning grant designed to help awarded centers better understand integrated behavioral health (IBH), assess their current level of integration, and identify areas for improvement. Part Two is an implementation grant to support the improvement efforts toward addressing gaps identified in the assessment and planning process.
Integrated Behavioral Health Assessment & Planning Grant (Part 1): To identify and describe the baseline integration levels, awarded health centers must complete a Foundation-approved assessment identifying the current level of integration. Centers should use the assessment to determine where they would like to be within two years on the continuum of integration, identify the gaps between levels and determine what resources and supports are needed to reach and sustain the higher level of integration.
All participating clinics will complete the same assessment and the Foundation will provide, at no cost to clinics, a consultant to help facilitate the completion of the assessment and improvement plan. Health centers are required to meet with the consultant regularly and to establish a work plan and timeline for completing the assessment, identifying areas of focus, and developing an improvement plan.

Funds are to be used to defray the cost of participating in the assessment and planning activities and to cover convening and facilitation expenses.
