Community Grant Program

Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurses and nursing students are participating in projects throughout the state to bring desperately needed psychiatric care to underserved and vulnerable populations.

The Lois Price Spratlen Foundation is here to help.

Our Foundation Community Grant provides up to $2,000 to support a project which bring mental health services to communities across our state.

Community health, correctional facilities, rural counties, and underserved communities struggle to find qualified mental health providers. The social, economic, and insurance environment has led to a criticality of this deficit in practitioner supply.  

The nursing model of integrated and holistic mental health care is essential to meeting this need. Psychiatric ARNPs and nursing students are leading innovative local interventions and programs to assist those in need.
