Improving Academic Achievement Through Mental Health

The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites eligible organizations in Texas to respond to this request for proposals (RFP) to identify and build on resources that improve academic achievement through mental health.

The goals of this initiative are to improve academic achievement and mental wellness in educational settings through culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health supports and interventions.

Depending on the quality of proposals received, the foundation plans to award up to $1.5 million over three years to Texas public schools, charter schools, school districts, college and university campuses, and nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. The foundation has a preference for funding nonprofit organizations with a strong history of providing campus-based mental health supports and interventions. The total amount per award includes 10% for overhead expenses.
