Policy Meets Practice

We support local grassroots organizations that are working to advance recommendations outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Series.

Approach

Overviewssss

Policy and practice must work in tandem to drive critical systems changes. The Think Bigger Do Good Policy Paper Series provides policy solutions to our nation’s most pressing behavioral health issues. Though public policy has broad and deep impacts for families and communities, public policy discussions often occur without those most affected at the table. 

This grant program will support local, grassroots organizations that are working directly with communities to address issues that relate to, inform, and advance the policy discussions outlined in this series. Each grant cycle will focus on a different paper, or set of papers.

The application period has now closed.
