Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $5,000 to Texas nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide direct mental health services for military veterans and their families. Eligible programs may include peer-delivered services, clinical counseling, and non-clinical support services.

The Texas Veterans Commission is authorized to use funds appropriated to the FVA to administer the Fund and make reimbursement grants to address the needs of Veterans and their families. Projects funded under the Veterans Mental Health Grant program should emphasize direct services to veterans and their families and include the following service categories:

Clinical Counseling Services. Services that involve interaction with or supervision by licensed mental health professionals. Services may include, but are not limited to: clinical counseling, group sessions, Veteran family member counseling, Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) services, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) services, co-occurring diagnosis counseling, or other types of counseling.

Please note: applicants will be responsible for providing documentation regarding the licensure of mental health professionals providing services through the Project.

Non-Clinical Support Services. Mental health services provided by a non-licensed mental health professional. Services may include, but are not limited to therapeutic equine, canine or other animal therapy, music, play or dance therapy, personal improvement workshops.

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: operation of Peer Networking centers, support groups, information and referral services, information dissemination, outreach, advocacy, technical assistance, training, and direct services.

Priorities The Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) established the following priorities to provide guidance to the FVA Advisory Committee in developing funding recommendations and for the Commission in making grant awards. These priorities are:

  • Service Categories: Priority will be given to Clinical Counseling Services and Peer-Delivered Services
  • Geographic Distribution: The FVA Advisory Committee will develop recommendations that will ensure widespread distribution of grants across the state.
  • Diversity of Services in Geographic Areas: The Commission encourages a diversity of services provided within geographic regions.
  • Outstanding Grant Applications: Priority will be given to outstanding-rated grant applications.
  • Full Funding: The FVA Advisory Committee will recommend fully funding grant requests, whenever possible.

The above priorities will be used in the funding recommendations made for this grant.
