Van Ameringen Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation seeks to increase the accessibility of mental health services to people and communities with limited financial means and opportunities. The Foundation welcomes letters of inquiry from organizations serving the five boroughs of New York City and Philadelphia. Grants are awarded in two areas: direct service and non-direct service. Direct Service grants of up to $75,000 a year over three years will be awarded to programs and projects that provide a direct service such as case management, assessment, counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatric care, training or jobs, or housing people and communities confronting significant mental illness. Non-direct Service grants of up to $250,000 a year for up to three years will be awarded in support of strategies that seek to create changes in the law, public policy, or 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 safety net and system; 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. Additional information including an eligibility quiz can be found on the Web site.
