About this funder:



COVID-19 SASS Children’s Mental Health Initiative

The Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation recognizes the importance of sustaining the Screening Assessment and Support Services (SASS) children’s mental health providers while these providers respond to changes in the service environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in service provision and referral volume have caused significant financial stress on SASS programs, which are required to maintain staffing levels to be able to respond to mental health crisis on a 24/7/365 basis. ILCHF invites SASS providers to apply for SASS general operating grants. ILCHF will make up to $1,500,000 in funding available for this initiative.
