The West Virginia Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities has announced funding opportunities for the expansion of some health services across the state.

The goal is to expand services in four behavioral health categories: recovery coaching, substance abuse, school mental health and youth behavioral health organizations.

Individuals and organizations are invited to apply for the funding, which ranges from up to $750,000 for recovery coaches to up to $2 million for youth organizations.

In a press release, Health Cabinet Secretary Karen Bowling said the funding will help the state provide West Virginians of all ages with the support they need to be successful.

Interested parties can apply for funding using the Proposal Template on the Department of Health and Human Resources website or send an email to the DHHR Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities with "Proposal for Funding” in the subject line. A DHHR spokesperson said paper copies of the proposal will not be accepted.
