The program accomplishes this goal by awarding one-year grants to community health centers (CHCs), community mental health centers (CMHCs; inclusive of community-based mental health centers, substance use programs, and psychiatric day treatment programs), and emergency service programs (ESPs) participating in MassHealth payment reform) and Community Service Agencies (CSA), Community Partners (CP) and their Affiliated Partners and Consortium Entities, and organizations contracted with a MassHealth ACO to provide In-Home Therapy (IHT) to support provider-led projects related to accountable care implementation.
