Description

The Foundation supports innovative and practical programs that increase the accessibility of mental health services to the poor and needy, preventative and early intervention strategies, and advocacy at the local or national level. The Foundation awards two types of grants: direct service and non-direct service grants. Direct service grants of up to $75,000 are awarded to support programs and projects that provide a direct service such as case management, assessment, counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatric care, training, or jobs, housing, and other support to people and communities grappling with significant mental illness. Non-direct service grants of up to $250,000 are awarded in support of strategies that seek to create changes in the law, public policy, or in the perceptions and practices of the public and private sectors responsible for improving mental health care, particularly in unserved or underserved communities; efforts that seek to share research findings, best practices, and knowledge related to improving the mental health system and safety net; and activities that provide learning and skill-building opportunities for mental health providers, advocates, people living with mental illness, policy makers, and family or community members who are seeking to deepen their understanding, knowledge, treatment, or social change efforts. Eligible nonprofits must serve residents of the metro New York or Philadelphia areas. The Foundation does not currently support programs related to intellectual or physical disability. Additional information including an eligibility quiz can be found on the Web site.
