Request for Proposals: 2012 Integrated Health Care Planning and Implementation Grants
This request for proposals is now closed.
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites nonprofit behavioral health and primary care providers in Texas to submit proposals for integrated health care planning and implementation activities.
The purpose of the grant program is to increase the number of Texas nonprofit behavioral health and primary care providers delivering integrated care, with the ultimate goal of making integrated care standard practice in the state.
Depending on the quality of proposals received, the foundation plans to award grants of up to $25,000 each for one-year planning grants and up to $100,000 each for two-year implementation grants. Respondents may apply for either a one-year planning grant or a two-year implementation grant.
Physical and behavioral health conditions often occur at the same time, yet typically are treated separately by different health care providers with unconnected medical records in different locations. In 2006 the foundation identified the integration of behavioral and physical health care as a priority investment area during a strategic planning process with state and national stakeholders in mental health.
