2019 Grant Cycle

Letters of Intent for the 2019 cycle opened on January 2, 2019; all letters are due by February 8, 2019. Grant decisions are anticipated by June 2019.  2019 Grant focus areas will continue to be Youth and Adolescent Behavioral Health and Elder Health. The 2019 process will result in awards totaling approximately $78,000 for Elder Health programs and projects and $127,000 for those addressing Youth/Adolescent Behavioral Health.   

 In 2019, our goal is to lower the threshold to access for targeted services and treatment of behavioral and mental health needs.  We seek collaborative, partnership-driven proposals that increase access to behavioral health services and treatment.  Specifically, the 2019 NSCHN grants will support and enhance strong community-based partnerships that provide access to quality mental and behavioral health services and treatments for underserved school-age children and older adults. 

Important:  To increase the overall impact of our funding, we anticipate a reduction in the overall number of awards.  In 2019, In 2019, NSCHN is offering opportunities to apply in two separate tiers under each category, and will provide at least 4 but no more than 8 grants in all as follows:
