Funds may be used at the discretion of the State to achieve the described objectives except for certain requirements. State plans must meet prescribed criteria. Services under the plan will be provided only through appropriate, qualified community programs (which may include community mental health centers, child mental-health programs, psychosocial rehabilitation programs, mental health peer-support programs and mental-health primary consumer- directed programs). Services under the plan will be provided through community mental health centers only if the centers meet prescribed criteria. Up to 5 percent of grant funds may be used for administering the funds. Funds may not be used to provide inpatient services; to make cash payments to intended recipients of health services; to purchase or improve land, purchase, construct, or permanently improve (other than minor remodeling) any building or other facility, or purchase major medical equipment; to satisfy any requirement for the expenditure of nonfederal funds as a condition for the receipt of Federal funds; or to provide financial assistance to any entity other than a public or nonprofit private entity.
