In April 2015 a team of BHARP staff and BHARP member county staff, with the consultative support of the state Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and System of Care Partnership, came together to develop a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) System of Care Grant (SOC) application. In July 2015 the grant host county program, Columbia/Montour/Snyder/Union county joinder, received notification that the grant was funded. SAMHSA funded the full requested amount: $1,000,000 per year for 4 years.
During the application development process 8 BHARP member counties affirmed their interest in participating in the grant activities at the highest level. These 8 counties are identified as “Tier 1” System of Care counties. They are Forest, Northumberland, Potter, Schuylkill, Snyder, Union, Warren, and Wayne. Tier 1 counties will have access to $50,000 per year of the grant to support their local goals related to the core activities and additional county priorities which they identify. The remaining 15 BHARP counties will have opportunities to access training and other resources developed as a part of the grant as it evolves.
