Van Ameringen Foundation Accepting LOIs for Mental Health Programs

Established in 1950, the van Ameringen Foundation seeks to increase the accessibility of mental health services to people and communities with limited financial means and opportunities, offer preventive and early-intervention strategies, and/or advocate for systemic change with local or national impact.

To that end, the foundation welcomes Letters of Inquiry from organizations serving the five boroughs of New York City and Philadelphia for the following grants programs:

Direct Service Grants — Grants of up to $75,000 per 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, housing, and other supports to people and communities confronting significant mental illness.

Non-Direct Service Grants — Grants of up to $250,000 per year for up to three years will be awarded to support 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 healthcare, 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; 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.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization serving the five boroughs of New York City and Philadelphia. Currently, the foundation does not support programs related to intellectual disability or physical disability.

Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than June 26. Upon review, applicants will be invited to submit a full application.

See the van Ameringen Foundation for complete program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application procedures.

Deadline: June 26, 2020 (Letters of Inquiry)
