Grants to California nonprofit and for-profit community-based agencies and partnerships to provide mental health and wellness services for the African American community in eligible locations. Funding is intended for engagement, outreach, and prevention services for people of all ages and genders, with special consideration for children, youth, and transition-age youth (ages 0 to 25) who have experienced or been exposed to trauma. Organizations must be physically located and provide services in Sacramento County.

Sacramento neighborhoods served will include those with the highest demonstrated rates of disproportionate health and wellness outcomes for African Americans, including Arden-Arcade, Del Paso Heights-North Sacramento, Fruitridge-Stockton Boulevard, Meadowview, North Highlands – Foothill Farms, Oak Park, Rancho Cordova, and Valley Hi.

The Trauma-Informed Wellness Program for the African American/Black Community will provide outreach, engagement and time-limited prevention services to African American/Black community members of all ages and genders, with special consideration given to children, youth and transition-age youth (ages 0 to 25), who have experienced or been exposed to trauma. The program will incorporate an understanding of African American/ Black cultural heritage, including norms and traditions, the broad and multifaceted definition of family, and historical trauma.

The outreach and engagement strategies must be culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate to effectively engage the African American/Black community. Successful applicants must engage community members using a combination of culturally responsive methods including social media platforms, community-based and in-person street outreach, and in program participants’ homes, as allowable and appropriate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
