Cigna Foundation: Healthier Kids For Our Future – Mental Health GrantsDeadline: September 30, 2020
In 2020, Cigna Foundation is expanding the Healthier Kids For Our Future initiative to include good health and well-being with a focus on mental health. The goal is to supplement existing mental health programming, and help close gaps both within and outside the school environment to address loneliness, anxiety, depression, and suicide prevention. We will fund programs that foster collaboration between stakeholders including school administrators and teachers, clinicians, and local and national nonprofits to address mental health and emotional well-being challenges for children.
Partners are encouraged to leverage one or more of the follow evidence-based programs:
- Trauma Informed Practices (TIPS)
- Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
- Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Amount: The Healthier Kids for Our Future Initiative will provide up to a total of $5 million in grants to community organizations over the next year. Note that this includes food insecurity grants and mental health grants. Individual award amounts are not specified.
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations that serve newborn to 2th grade students; teachers; school administrators; school mental health staff; parents, guardians, and/or caregivers; clinicians; and community organization staff.
