Hogg Foundation for Mental Health seeking grant applications from Texas community nonprofits

As part of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health’s 80th Anniversary initiative, the foundation will invest $2 million in complete count efforts for the 2020 U.S. Census, focusing on hard-to-count populations in Texas. The goal is to promote active participation so that every person in Texas is counted.  The foundation seeks proposals for both local, on-the-ground complete count efforts as well as statewide coordination of get-out-the-count (GOTC) activities. Strategies should focus on hard-to-count (HTC) populations, communities or geographic regions in Texas that are designated as health professional shortage areas (HPSA) and utilize collaborative approaches to increasing participation in the 2020 U.S. Census. 
The foundation seeks to award multiple grants to local GOTC efforts, for which each proposal can range from $5,000 – $75,000. Additionally, the foundation seeks to award multiple statewide coordination grants, for which each proposal could range from $50,000 – $125,000. The number of grants awarded is contingent upon the quality of proposals received
