Cottage Health is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Community Partnership Grants Behavioral Health Initiative. Committed to funding efforts that address community needs through evidence-based interventions, the 2021-2022 Behavioral Health Initiative brings a new focus to improving behavioral health outcomes and quality of life for children and youth, and their families, in south and mid-Santa Barbara County.

Guided by community input collected during Cottage Health’s Community Health Needs Assessment and Listening Tour, the grants program offers a multi-year funding opportunity to promote collaboration across organizations and takes an initiative-level approach to behavioral health support.

The Behavioral Health Initiative includes an emphasis on health equity and partners to implement each of these three key strategies:

  1. Increase access to behavioral health services;
  2. Reduce barriers to accessing and utilizing behavioral health services through policy and systems change efforts; and
  3. Reduce the rates of behavioral health needs through prevention efforts.

An application workshop will be held virtually on Thursday, September 10, 2020 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. RSVP to Leah Wooldridge at lwooldri@sbch.org to receive a link to the meeting.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. To learn more about the grants and how to apply, visit cottagehealth.org/population-health.
