Innovation Grants Third Round Grantees

Round Three projects address the needs of two communities:
1) Isolated adult and older adult consumers and their families;
2) LGBTQI2S clients and consumers.

In 2011, in anticipation of potential MHSA Innovation Grants Program funding, BHCS commissioned two consulting projects, to conduct a demographic analysis and provide a summary of the significant behavioral health care needs for these target populations. The purpose of these projects was to provide BHCS with an analysis of the specific needs of each target population, which would inform the development of learning questions for potential inquiry funded by Innovation grants; to recommend outreach and engagement strategies; and to provide other pertinent information regarding the target population.
