Will there be allowances for budget exceptions? (7/7/23)

Subtopic: Budget/Allowable Use  

Exceptions to the budgetary specifications will be reviewed by DHCS on a case-by-case basis. Applicants may choose to request an exception from some of the requirements, described below. For DHCS to consider an exception, the applicant must include a strong justification and documentation proving that it is necessary. As noted in the RFA, any exception requests must “clearly describe how the exception is essential for the applicant to be able to effectively serve their community and how the restrictions limit their implementation” (Attachment B of the RFA). The following are the only funding requirements for which applicants may request an exception. No other exceptions will be approved.

  • $75,000-per-bed limit on BHBH start-up infrastructure
  • BHBH start-up infrastructure completion within one year of contract execution
