Bill Summary

Joint Budget Committee. No later than February 1, 2025, the bill requires the department of health care policy and financing (HCPF), in collaboration with the behavioral health administration in the department of human services (BHA), to:

  • Submit an application to the federal substance abuse and mental health services administration (SAMHSA) for a certified community behavioral health clinic planning, development, and implementation demonstration planning grant (grant); and
  • Submit a report to the joint budget committee on the status of the grant application.

The bill requires HCPF and the BHA to work with the joint budget committee to determine how to proceed with the grant if, during the grant application process, there are substantial changes to federal funding that would negatively affect the state of Colorado.

If HCPF is awarded the grant, the bill requires the BHA to promulgate rules necessary to certify community behavioral health clinics in accordance with the guidelines established by SAMHSA HCPF to comply with all necessary guidelines established by SAMHSA for a certified community behavioral health clinic grant awardee.
