Rancho San Antonio Boys Home, Inc is Pleased to Announce That We Have Been Granted $4,197,699 in Awards to Expand Behavioral and Mental Health Infrastructure

Rancho San Antonio in Chatsworth, CA, in northwest Los Angeles County, was recently awarded $4,197,699 of grant funding by the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Behavioral Health Continuum Infrastructure Program (BHCIP) Round 4: Children and Youth grants. This is the fourth of six rounds of the $2.2 billion BHCIP funding provided by the Legislature and the Governor, which was authorized in the fiscal year 2021-22 budget to construct, acquire, and expand behavioral health facilities and community based care options as well as invest in mobile crisis infrastructure.

The full scope and amount that we proposed was approved, RSA is one of twelve Los Angeles County agencies (and 54 statewide) who were awarded the grant for Round 4 (Children and Youth).

Round 4 grant funding can only be used for facility capacity expansion and thus RSA is looking to build a new outpatient behavioral health center that will provide mental health and substance use treatment as well as prevention and early intervention for youth and their families. The construction of this project will provide additional office space, group area, and a waiting room.

The goal will be to expand capacity to provide therapeutic programming areas for outpatient and intensive outpatient services for Substance Use Disorders (SUD) treatment, Mental Health services including prevention and wellness interventions, and non-traditional modalities of treatment such as creative healing arts.
