Notification of Funding Availability – Champaign County Mental Health Board (CCMHB)/ Champaign County Board for Care and Treatment of Persons with a Developmental Disability (CCDDB) - The two funding sources utilize an online system for submission of funding requests for contract years beginning July 1 and ending June 30. Applicants register on the site prior to requesting funding, and if awarded a contract, will submit required reports on this system. Per an approved, publicly available timeline, the system was most recently available for registration and application up to February 7, 2020 at 4:30 PM, with no consideration of late applications. Final allocation decisions were made prior to July 1, 2020. The next NOFA is expected to be announced in mid December of 2020, after each board has finalized and approved a plan with allocation priorities and decision criteria and is reasonably certain of an approved budget for the coming year.
