Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare Fund: Micro-Grants


The Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare Fund supports a wide variety of activities through our micro-grant program as well as carefully selected projects identified by our board of experts.

Our areas of interest touch all aspects of behavioral healthcare, especially projects that assist or improve the lives of children impacted by mental illness and/or substance use.

The Fund does not have a formal grant review calendar and is pleased to review proposals at any time. Grant proposals will be reviewed by the Institute’s Grant Review Board as they are received. Applicants may expect a response within 90 days. For questions related to the fund, please contact Peggy Mullaney at

NOTE: We do not make grants to individuals, for-profit institutions, or political campaigns.
