More Than $200 Million Awarded for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Service Expansion

Last week, HRSA announced the fiscal year 2017 Access Increases in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (AIMS) awards. AIMS funding provides more than $200 million to 1,178 health centers to increase personnel, leverage health information technology, and provide training to support the expansion of mental health services and substance abuse services focusing on the treatment, prevention, and awareness of opioid abuse, and their integration into primary care. AIMS awards will support health centers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Award recipients are invited to view a brief video on the AIMS technical assistance website highlighting the awards and important information for award recipients.
