The Upswing Fund for Adolescent Mental Health is a collaborative fund that provides timely resources to organizations that focus on the mental health and well-being of adolescents who are of color and/or LGBTQ+ in the United States—populations that face urgent needs during the pandemic but too often lack access to the care they need.
The Upswing Fund is currently accepting applications for two types of grants. Applicants may apply to one type of grant only:
Surge Capacity: Provide immediate resources to direct-service organizations that provide mental healthcare to adolescents who are of color and/or LGBTQ+.
Systems Enabler: Provide resources to organizations to surface innovative approaches for adolescent mental health services that make more resilient systems to enable access to care.
Each organization may submit only one application for either Surge Capacity or Systems Enabler grants.
