Grants to Wisconsin and Minnesota government and tribal entities, nonprofit organizations, and educational and faith-based organizations in eligible regions to promote mental and behavioral health. Funding is intended for projects and programs that address mental illness and SUD as well as for activities to prevent mental illness. The SCVF supports ten completely volunteer-run affiliated foundations in six counties throughout the St. Croix Valley including Chisago and Washington Counties in Minnesota and Burnett, Polk, St. Croix and Pierce counties in Wisconsin. Applicants must provide services in at least one of the ten participating affiliate communities.

The SCVF is collaborating with ten Affiliates to offer this region-wide grant program (Amery Area Community Foundation, Chisago Lakes Area Community Foundation, Hudson Community Foundation, Lower St. Croix Valley Community Foundation, New Richmond Area Community Foundation, Northwest Alliance Community Foundation, Prescott Foundation, River Falls Community Foundation, Somerset Community Foundation, and Stillwater Area Community Foundation). On the application, applicants will indicate which community/ies they serve, how they are serving them, and what mental health interventions, policy, or projects they are implementing in at least one of those participating Affiliate communities. 

SCVF’s Vibrant Communities Mental Health grant program intends to support organizations addressing the behavioral health needs of our communities to promote good mental health.
