Improving outcomes through community engagement

About the Grants Programs

CalMHSA has coordinated with several counties to offer funding to local organizations and individuals, through which to perform community engagement activities that help raise awareness and offer services relating to mental health and wellness. Funding opportunities are timed to coincide with Mental Health Matters Month in May, Suicide Prevention Month in September, and Mental Health Awareness Week in October.

Los Angeles County Grants Program

Update: 5/11/2020

On behalf of the LA County Department of Mental Health, CalMHSA would like to thank all of you for the countless hours spent preparing proposals for this Spring’s grant opportunity.  

Unfortunately, we have no choice but to postpone the mini-grants program at this time due to the current Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) which has rendered implementation non-feasible and altered selection criteria. In the months ahead, as we move forward in accordance with State and Local guidance related to the evolving public health crisis, we will reopen the Mini-Grant opportunity and focus on proposals that align with COVID-19 recovery efforts across the County. Your current submissions remain invaluable and will be considered when this program reopens though requests for modification may be made in order to pivot programming as indicated and ensure that proposed program activities are safe in communities.

We appreciate your patience and hope that you, your families, and communities are staying healthy during this time of unprecedented challenge.
