Grants of up to $1,500 and grants of up to $30,000 to Maryland nonprofit organizations to improve the mental health of residents in eligible locations. Funding is intended for proposals that enhance resilience and wellbeing in the local community. Eligible applicants deliver services to Howard County residents.

The Foundation is seeking partners to help protect and support mental wellbeing. Specifically, the Foundation is seeking creative solutions from organizations to help build and strengthen resilience as a community.

Organizations can submit proposals to serve children and youth, adults, or both. Successful applicants will demonstrate a need for funding to implement ways to build resilience. The proposal must address at least one of the following three areas of resilience. Examples of appropriate topics and programs are provided:

  • Physical: Investing in physical health and wellness to increase protective benefits from a healthy lifestyle. For example,
    • Creating opportunities to engage in exercise or physical activity
    • Implementing neurobiological programs, like mindfulness-based stress reduction to support stress management
  • Personal: Supporting education in emotional regulation, reactivity and impulsivity, and problem-solving. For example,
    • Educating residents on how to build coping and problem-solving skills
    • Training in emotional regulation to recognize and manage reactivity and impulsivity
    • Psychoeducation to help individuals make informed decisions, solve problems, and address self-defeating beliefs
  • Social: Establishing social supports to build connections to family, peers and mentors. For example,
    • Creating spaces for residents to engage with school communities and classmates, peers, co-workers/employers, faith groups, and/or cultural groups
    • Support knowledge around social competence and empathy
    • Helping youth connect with mentors who align with their skills and interests

Grant Tracks:

  • Track 1: These awards are appropriate for shorter-term programming or events that address one or more of the resiliency criteria.
  • Track 2: These awards are appropriate for longer-term grants that address one or more of the resiliency criteria, and that have a plan for sustainability once funds are exhausted. This might be, for example, a newly created staff position that will be funded by your organization after grant funds are fully used.
