Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) - Fund for Veterans' Assistance (FVA)
11/05/20 5:00 PM
Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide direct mental health services to military veterans and their families. Funding is intended to support two types of service categories: clinical counseling services and peer-support services. The two service categories are designed to collectively provide counseling and treatment to veterans and their families to address diagnosed conditions in order to improve their quality of life, relationships, outlook, and successful integration with their communities.
Clinical Counseling Services: Services and treatment that include evidence-based practices (EBP) for diagnosed conditions or co-occurring conditions including but not limited to:
Integrative therapies, non-clinical services, and other activities that complement or support EBP modalities can be included in TVC funded mental health programs and services if they are supervised under the licensure of a licensed mental health professional.
For additional information about clinical counseling, see https://www.tvc.texas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/RFA_FVA-2021-22-Grants-approved-1.pdf#page=10
Peer-Delivered Services. Services based upon the premise that an individual with a “lived experience,” in this case military service, is uniquely able to contribute to the rehabilitation and recovery of those needing services. Services could include but are not limited to the operation of Peer Networking centers, support groups, information and referral services, information dissemination, advocacy, technical assistance, life skills training, and direct services.
Peer-support services must be supervised by certified peer specialists, social workers, and/or pastoral counselors. Non-trained/certified mentors and volunteer sponsors with shared experiences can provide services under the supervision of a trained/certified peer services provider.
