Grants to USA nonprofits for programs that address the needs of individuals with mental illness and those with AIDS. Particular emphasis is made on programs that address the needs of underserved population. Funding is intended to support pilot, model, and demonstration projects that are innovative and address the specific program areas.

More details on the program areas are as follows:

Since 1932 Mental Health has been a major focus at the Ittleson Foundation. The Foundation continues its commitment to bringing its “venture capital” approach to philanthropy to this area. In addition to its historic commitment to addressing the needs of underserved populations, particular interest is given to innovative, pilot, model and demonstration projects that are:

- Fighting the stigma associated with mental illness and working to change the public’s negative perception of people who have mental illness
- Utilizing new knowledge and current technological advances to improve programs and services for people who have mental illness
- Bringing the full benefits of this new knowledge and technology to those who presently do not have access to them
- Advancing preventative mental health efforts, especially those targeted to youth and adolescents, with a special focus on strategies that involve parents, teachers, and others in close contact with these populations.

AIDS remains a significant concern of the Ittleson Foundation. Their commitment to supporting cutting-edge prevention efforts remains strong. As in all current areas of interest, innovative initiatives that involve more than one program area are encouraged. Particular interest is given to new model, pilot, and demonstration efforts:

- Addressing the needs of underserved at-risk populations and especially those programs recognizing the overlap between such programs
- Responding to the challenges facing community-based AIDS service organizations and those organizations addressing systemic change
- Providing meaningful school-based sex education
- Making treatment information accessible, available, and easily understandable to those in need of it
- Addressing the psycho-social needs of those infected and affected by AIDS, especially adolescents
