We are proud to announce a three-year recurring principal discretionary grant of up to $5,000 per academic year, as well as, a mental health professional to support student behavioral health services on campus.
Supporting Schools Supports a Child's Success
SBHS is designed to bring and support highly skilled clinicians into schools, after-school programs, and youth summer programs to assist personnel and other adults who interact with youth in both school settings and local communities. By implementing this program, SBHS expects to achieve increased access to school-aged youth who may otherwise not have access to counseling services and increased awareness of mental health issues among school-aged youth and adults on campus.
Individual grants of up to $100,000 may be awarded. Each awarded grant requires a 40% cost-sharing match.
Who May Apply: Non-profit agencies with a proven track record of providing intervention and/or prevention services on school campuses. To be eligible, non-profit agencies must have existing strong partnerships with a Title 1 middle and/or high school having a student enrollment of at least 500 students, of which 60% are classified as free or reduced lunch status.
