Hogg Foundation for Mental Health (Austin, TX) plans to award up to $3 million a year in grants over the next three years to expand and improve mental health services for children and families in Houston and Harris County, Texas. The grants will be funded by a special endowment that may only be used to pay for mental health prevention, early intervention, and treatment services for children, youth, and their families in Houston and Harris County.
The foundation developed the request for grant proposals following an 18- month strategic planning process to improve children’s mental health services in which stakeholders told planners that children and families need better access to quality services that promote mental health and more quickly identify, intervene, and treat mental health needs. The community also recommended designing services for
children and families that are childfocused and family-driven, community-based, and culturally competent. The foundation intends to award multiple grants for one-, two- and three-year proposals, with a focus on geographic areas of highest need.
