Applications are now being accepted for Round 2 of the Mentored Internship Program (MIP). This initiative provides grant funding to nonprofit provider organizations, Tribal organizations, and county-operated providers of behavioral health services in underserved and diverse communities to support behavioral health internship programs. Organizations can apply for up to $500,000 to develop, implement, and maintain an in-house Mentored Internship Program that will create a sustainable SUD workforce. Priority for funding will be given to organizations that propose to specifically train more professionals who work with individuals who have, or are at risk of developing, OUDs. 

The MIP funding is part of the BHWD efforts of the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). This RFA contains information about the MIP, such as background, legal, fiscal, and program requirements for applicants. Eligibility criteria and application instructions are included. Apply today!
