In September 2011, Virginia was awarded a one year System of Care (SOC) Planning Grant through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The focus of the grant project was to establish a comprehensive strategic plan to expand SOC statewide through a multidisciplinary effort of agency/organization partnership. The current strategic plan developed through subsequent System of Care Expansion Grants builds on the statewide effort to expand SOC. Overarching goals of the plan are:

  • Develop community-based services and supports based on the SOC philosophy
  • Behavioral health workforce development
  • Quality improvement methodologies, data mining and management improvements
