Los Angeles County Mini-Grant Program (UPDATE 8/11/2020):

When the LA County Department of Mental Health and CalMHSA set out to provide mini-grants to community innovation projects, the vision was to create community conveneings that brought people together to improve the wellbeing of people in LA County.

The current pandemic has made these kinds of efforts difficult, and we regret to announce that we need to postpone awarding grants until we receive more clarity from state and local partners on how to proceed. Both LACDMH and CalMHSA remain committed to supporting innovative and community-centered mental health efforts, and we are working to adapt grant and program design to meet our new physical distancing realities.

While we cannot fully understand the impact these delays may have on various projects, we appreciate everything that applicants have done to rethink wellbeing in their respective communities, and we hope to revisit this process when the pandemic subsides. Despite the uncertainty, we will continue to support community organizations as we are all in this together. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, feedback, or concerns.

We will notify all previous and current applicants on all communication channels to ensure everyone is aware as changes develop. We hope you and your communities remain safe and healthy, and we are here to help support despite the challenges we all currently face.

CalMHSA, in partnership with the Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services, is proud to announce the Alameda County Loan Repayment Program (ACLRP) opportunity. These grants seek to continue to provide financial incentive to retain qualified, eligible employees in hard to fill/retain positions in the Alameda County Behavioral Health Care system.
