The Montana Healthcare Foundation (MHCF) makes grants to improve the health and well-being of all Montanans. We will consider proposals in three areas under this CFP:
- Integrated Behavioral Health
- Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Treatment
- Solving Perinatal Drug and Alcohol Use
- Strategic and business planning:
- One-year planning grants that will result in a viable plan to fund and implement programming to address an important health issue.
- Strengthening crisis continuum of care for mental illness and substance use disorders:
- Projects that seek to align stakeholders, create new partnerships, and leverage other available sources of funding to enhance the region’s ability to provide a continuum of care for those in crisis.
- Trauma-informed schools:
- Proposals to improve educational, behavioral, and health outcomes for students through implementing trauma-informed educational practices and policies in schools, and programs to address childhood trauma in a self-sustaining way through, for example, implementing evidence-based programs such as the Good Behavior Game.
- Partnerships with Criminal Justice:
- Projects that will improve mental illness and SUD outcomes for justice-involved populations through, for example, addressing treatment needs and improving continuity of care for people during and after incarceration, and planning and implementing pre-trial diversion to treatment.
Under this CFP, we are offering grants between $10,000 and $50,000 for projects implemented within a 12-month period, and grants up to $100,000 for projects implemented within a 24-month period. All grants will be awarded through a one-step application process offered twice in 2018, with a possibility of a third opportunity in the fall.
