Funding Opportunities

The Hogg Foundation is accepting proposals for the following opportunities.


Communities of Care | Proposal deadline: January 9, 2019 (11:59 p.m. CST)

The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites existing collaboratives in the Houston Metropolitan Statistical Area to submit a proposal for our new Communities of Care initiative, which aims to support communities in their efforts to inclusively and collaboratively cultivate resiliency, mental health, and well-being in everyday life for all members of the community, with a specific focus on children and youth of color and their families.

Depending upon the quality of proposals received, the foundation plans to award up to 12, five-year grants totaling up to $8 million. The foundation will consider proposed project budgets ranging from $500,000 to $800,000 per applicant, contingent upon demonstrated community need. Grantees will build on an existing collaborative composed of diverse partners and community members who will assess the current environment, and plan and implement strategies, services and supports to improve community resiliency, mental health and well-being, with a focus on equity.

Harry E. and Bernice M. Moore Fellowship for Doctoral Research | Proposal deadline: June 1, 2019 (1:00 p.m. CST)

A one-time fellowship of $20,000 is awarded annually to doctoral students at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) who are completing a dissertation on the human experience in crises, including those resulting from natural or other major disasters or, more broadly, stress and adversity. The Moore Fellowship was established in 1995 by the estate of Bernice Moore in memory of her husband, Dr. Harry Estill Moore, a professor and sociologist at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). Moore specialized in disaster studies, including tornadoes and hurricanes that affected the state of Texas.

Doctoral students at UT Austin who are in the process of completing a dissertation relevant to the mental health needs of Texans are invited to submit a proposal. To be eligible for the fellowship, candidates must also demonstrate a primary research interest of the human experience in crises, including those resulting from natural or other major disasters or, more broadly, stress and adversity. Learn more
