Pierce County and OnePierce Award 21 Behavioral Health Recipients with $1.5 M in CARES Act Funding

In partnership with Pierce County, Elevate Health is awarding 21 behavioral health providers a total of $1.5 million in CARES Act funding. OnePierce Community Resiliency Fund (OnePierce), the funding arm of Elevate Health, recommended applicants to Pierce County and collaborated with the County on final selections. The following behavioral health providers will receive funding to serve Pierce County residents in response to the COVID-19 crisis and recovery.

The award recommendations were based on a competitive application process. OnePierce received twenty-three applications requesting total funding of $2.77M. The most common funding requests were for PPE, telehealth equipment, social distancing modifications and staff time.

The CARES Act funding will reimburse costs incurred by behavioral health providers and recipients must use the funds between July 6, 2020, and December 31, 2020.
