GENERAL NOTICES/ERRATA
Vol. 36 Iss. 1 - September 02, 2019

STATE BOARD OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES

Request for Comment on the Combined 2020-2021 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Block Grant Application

Background: The Commonwealth of Virginia, through the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), uses the mental health (MH) and substance abuse (SA) block grants for treatment, recovery support, and other services to supplement Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance services. Specifically, block grant recipients use the awards for the following purposes:

• Funding priority treatment and support services for individuals who do not have insurance or for whom coverage is terminated for short periods of time.

• Funding those priority treatment and support services that demonstrate success in improving outcomes or supporting recovery that are not covered by Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance.

• Collecting performance and outcome data to determine the ongoing effectiveness of behavioral health promotion, treatment, and recovery support services.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020-2021 Combined Block Grant Application to provide an overview and current updates for the behavioral health system and State Plan in the Commonwealth.

Comment: Federal law, in Title XIX, Subpart III, § 1941 of the Public Health Service Act (42 USC § 300x-51), requires as a condition of the funding agreement for the grant that states provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the state block grant plan by making the plan public in such a manner as to facilitate comment from any person (including federal, tribal, or other public agencies) both during the development of the plan (including any revisions) and after the submission of the plan to SAMHSA.

The draft FY 2020-2021 Combined Mental Health and Substance Abuse Block Grant Application documents are posted for comment. Individuals interested in making comments on the draft FY 2020-2021 Combined Mental Health and Substance Abuse Block Grant Application prior to submission may do so on the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall at http://townhall.virginia.gov through 12 p.m. on Monday, September 2, 2019. An individual must first be registered as a public user to make comments on Town Hall. Comments may also be made by email to nathanael.rudney@dbhds.virginia.gov, FAX (804) 786-9248, TDD (804) 371-8977, or postal mail to Nathanael Rudney, Office of Adult Community Behavioral Health Services, Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, P.O. Box 1797, Richmond, VA 23218-1797. The public comment window will remain open for 60 days, including after submission of the plan to SAMHSA.
