Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Jackson County, Missouri individuals and firms to deliver consultation services to, and develop guidance materials for local mental health organizations. Funding is intended to help mental health providers deliver care to those with diverse beliefs and values, and social, cultural, and language needs. The goal of the program is to assist in developing a cultural competence improvement process for nonprofit mental health organizations and to provide staff support for a cultural competence advisory council.

The Community Mental Health Fund (MH Fund) requests proposals to:
- Develop written guidance material to enhance the ability of mental health organizations (providers) to provide care to participants with diverse values, beliefs, social, cultural, and linguistic needs;
- Arrange guidance material such that providers can independently self-assess;
- Develop guidance material that will eventually be used as an online tool. The electronic application of the tool is not part of this request and will be developed at a later time;
- Identify, with the assistance of a voluntary advisory council, a list of technical assistance information and resources;
- Provide limited on-site assistance to identified providers requiring special levels of support;
- Provide limited staff support, such as preparing reports, presentations and facilitating discussions for the cultural competence advisory council; and
- Provide monthly reporting to consist of a one-page summary, copies of work products, plus listing of hours expended.

The MH Fund will develop a limited contractual agreement for consultation services. The agreement will be developed from an agreed-upon scope of services between the selected consultant, which will include terms, timeline and deliverable products and services. The engagement will not constitute an employee relationship and the contractor will be responsible for taxes and insurance. Contractor will maintain organizational independence and will carry out training and technical assistance functions.
