In support of Governor Mike DeWine’s commitment to the Investment in Ohio’s Future, the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, will offer a $1M funding opportunity for faith-based and community-based organizations. The funds will be directed toward community-based strategies for mental wellness and support during this period of COVID-19. This opportunity is seeking to support Ohio’s most vulnerable populations. Local communities can apply for resources needed to empower everyday citizens to identify signs of poor mental health and/or addiction, reduce stigma associated with those issues, provide support, and offer resources to people about where to find help. All questions must be submitted electronically no later than June 5 to OhioMHAS at GOFBCI@mha.ohio.gov. Responses to frequently asked questions will be posted to the OhioMHAS Funding Opportunities web page. Proposals must be submitted by June 12.
