Mental Health Policy Fellow Grants
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites eligible organizations in Texas to respond to this request for proposals (RFP) to fund policy fellow positions. The goal of this initiative is to increase the number of individuals and organizations effectively engaging in mental health and substance use policy and advocacy in Texas.
Specific objectives include:
Public policy encompasses a variety of activities aimed at creating systems change including policy analysis, strategy development, implementation planning, systems monitoring, evaluation, and advocacy.
Grantees are expected to ensure that the fellow has strong policy and mental health mentorship. A major consideration of these grant awards will be the ability of the designated mentor(s) to support the fellow in their policy work.
Proposals should outline a work plan for fellow activities and responsibilities. The plan should provide opportunities for a variety of mental health and/or substance use policy experiences for the fellow. The plan should also include strategies for addressing the fellow’s professional development.
