Grant Funding for Mental Health Program

**RUBRIC ATTACHED, as well as two previous assignments to build on**

Background:  In your previous assignments, you addressed several steps of the general planning process in developing a community-based health promotion program. Specifically, you assessed the health needs of the community, chose a health focus and a target population to serve, and developed the program mission, goals, and objectives. The next steps in the planning process is securing program resources, including: identifying funding, considering an appropriate budget, and designating administrative roles.


To complete this Assignment, you will conduct a web search to identify a grant-funding source for your program. You may select a government or private grant. An appropriate funding opportunity is grant funding for health promotion programming, not research, business development, health service administration, or other activities. When reviewing potential funding sources, look for alignment between the mission or goals of the funding source and your program.

Your Assignment should be approximately 24 pages in length, written in essay format. Each of the sections listed below (except the summarizing conclusion) should be supported by relevant, highly credible* sources. Include appropriate supporting citations and references in APA format.

*Highly credible sources include: course materials, governmental agency websites, nonprofit and philanthropic organization websites, textbooks, scholarly sources.

Highly credible sources do not include: commercialized websites, blogs, popular media magazines and websites.
