Deadline for Proposals to Participate in the GPNP Behavioral Health Public Policy Cohort

Event Date: 

Saturday, March 12, 2016 - 12:00am to 12:05am

Event Location: 



We are offering an exciting opportunity to participate in the GPNP Behavioral Health Public Policy Cohort. This cohort is made possible through the generous support of Dollar Bank, Staunton Farm Foundation, and the Fine Foundation.

The GPNP Behavioral Health Cohort is a new approach to the public policy and advocacy efforts of the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP). During the next several months, we plan to:

1) engage behavioral health providers as thought leaders in key behavioral health policies;

2) educate state and federal legislators from the providers' perspectives; and

3) foster relationships between behavioral health providers and policymakers where those relationships don't already exist. 

To Apply:

Cohort models require small group participation. This cohort is limited to 15 participants so you must submit a short proposal to be considered for participation. 

The proposal uses The Pittsburgh Foundation's online grant portal. If your organization already has an account with The Pittsburgh Foundation's site, you can use the same login information. If not, please click "Create New Account" and fill out the required information. Once your account has been created you can log in and click "Apply" on the left sidebar. This will take you to the cohort application, which you can then fill out and submit. Please click on this link to begin the process:

Proposals are due at midnight March 12, 2016.

We will announce the finalists on March 18, 2016.
