Grants of up to $2,500 and grants of up to $10,000 to Wisconsin and Minnesota nonprofit organizations, agencies, tribal entities, and educational and faith-based organizations for programs that meet the Coronavirus (COVID-19) related behavioral health needs of residents in eligible counties. Eligible programs are those that benefit residents of the funding source's service area.

For many years, qualitative and quantitative health data has identified mental health and substance abuse as priority issues throughout SCVF’s six-county service area (Chisago and Washington counties in MN and Burnett, Polk, St. Croix and Pierce counties in WI). The increased isolation and stress due to COVID-19 has exacerbated what was already a significant concern. SCVF’s Mental Health grant program intends to support organizations addressing the behavioral health needs of our communities to promote good mental health. Grants will fund the prevention and treatment of mental illness. 

Funding Categories

  • General Operating Support:
    • Organization’s mission, programs, and services focus on mental health.
  • Project/Program Support:
    •  Crisis intervention for individuals experiencing mental illness and/or substance use disorder.
    •  Mental wellness programs that engage vulnerable populations. 

Applicants will indicate on the application whether they are applying for the Community or Regional grant opportunity.

  • Community Grant: Seven SCVF Affiliates (Amery Community Foundation, Chisago Lakes Area Community Foundation, Hudson Community Foundation, Northwest Alliance Community Foundation, Prescott Foundation, River Falls Community Foundation, and Somerset Community Foundation) are offering a community grant program to local organizations implementing mental health interventions, policy, or projects specific to one of those participating Affiliate communities.
  • Regional Grant: Three SCVF Affiliates (Lower St. Croix Valley Community Foundation, New Richmond Area Community Foundation, and Stillwater Area Community Foundation) are partnering with SCVF to offer a regional grant program for organizations implementing mental health interventions, policy, or projects in more than one participating Affiliate community. 

Priority Populations

  • Vulnerable populations (including, but not limited to, children, the elderly, victims of domestic abuse, LGBTQ, persons with disabilities).
