Are county behavioral health agencies required to participate in the Coordinated Entry System (CES) to request BHBH Program funding?

Subtopic: Program Requirements

There is no BHBH requirement that counties participate in the CES; however, collaboration with the CES may help county BHAs support the individuals they serve who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness, including BHBH participants. Note that the BHBH Program does require county BHAs to implement and actively participate in the HMIS in accordance with the ongoing implementation of AB 977 (Gabriel, Chapter 397, Statutes of 2021; see BHBH Program Round 1 RFA).
