Social and emotional wellness grant: Applications due February 28

Does your organization have a program or an idea for a program to strengthen social and emotional wellness in the community? This grant opportunity may help you build capacity for a program or improve or expand your existing program.  

Washington County Health and Human Services is offering $100,000 and $150,000 grants to organizations with programs that use a trauma-informed approach and address racial inequity. We will prioritize programs that serve Black/African American, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian, people of color, immigrant and refugee, LGBTQ+, or those living at the intersection of those identities. 

Your proposal can focus on children, youth, adults, older adults or a combination of age groups. You can apply for a maximum of $250,000 if you have one program that addresses social and emotional well-being in more than one age group and an additional program that focuses on evidence-based parenting.  

Examples might include programs that: 

  • Strengthen parenting knowledge, skills and connection through evidence-based parenting education 

  • Increase high school graduation 

  • Increase supports to ensure stable and attached families 

  • Support youth mentorship and youth-adult partnerships 

  • Increase financial or health literacy  

  • Increase access to physical activity or outdoor recreation 

  • Increase help-seeking behaviors 

  • Provide opportunities for meaningful social connection (adults and older adults) 

  • Increase access to technology for health promoting activities (adults and older adults) 

This grant is funded from a combination of federal American Rescue Plan dollars, state alcohol and drug prevention money, the state tobacco tax, Washington County Behavioral Health, Parenting Together Washington County, the Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative, and local beer and wine taxes.    

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
