Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill includes a one-time General Fund appropriation to the Department of Health and Human Services of $4,000,000 in fiscal year 2023-24 to bridge the gap for mental health organizations participating in certified community behavioral health clinic projects, which have been funded by federal grants from the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for the past 2 years. This funding ends on June 30, 2024.

A more current estimate would decrease the fiscal year 2023-24 General Fund appropriation by $1,750,000 to $2,250,000 and add a fiscal year 2024-25 General Fund appropriation of $750,000. This would adjust the funding to the current federal funding level and adjust the timing to match the federal fiscal year. Additionally, the department would suggest that the funding be moved from Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services - Z199 to Mental Health Services - Community - Z198.
