OFMD is responsible for the management and administration of the MDH Sponsored Capital Improvement Program Grants and Loans, which encompasses both the Community Health Facilities Grant Program and the Federally Qualified Health Centers Grant Program.
Community Health Facilities Grant Program ("CHFGP")
The CHFGP has been in existence since the 1970s and has provided millions of dollars in capital grants. The CHFGP provides capital grants to assist in the acquisition, design, construction, renovation, and equipping of facilities to provide mental health, developmental disabilities, and drug and alcohol abuse treatment services. It is considered essential to facilitate the movement of individuals with mental illness or developmental disabilitiesy from State-operated facilities to the community; and to house and treat individuals recovering from substance use disorders. The primary focus is to develop and expand supported housing units for eligible populations.
The goal is to use the CHFGP to leverage other capital and operating funds to expand community capacity, particularly to support housing for those with forensic involvement and integrate behavioral health services (i.e., mental illness and substance use disorders) that promote prevention, provide crisis and diversion services and integrate with somatic services.
Federally Qualified Health Centers Grant Program ("FQHCGP")
The FQHCGP has been in existence since 2004 and has provided millions of dollars in capital grants. The FQHCGP provides capital grants to assist in the conversion, acquisition, design, construction, renovation, and equipping of Federally Qualified Health Center facilities, which provide primary care, speciality care, OB/GYN, dental, mental health, and drug and alcohol abuse treatment services. Priorities for funding are set by the Primary Care Office under the Office of Population Health Improvement.
