The Richard King Mellon Foundation is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to address the barriers that make it difficult for children and youth who reside in low-income households in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties to access prevention, detection, and early intervention mental health services.

The Foundation will consider all submitted proposals that address prevention, detection, or early intervention efforts to support the mental well-being of children and young adults ages 0 to 24 years who reside in low income households in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties.

The Foundation also strongly encourages collaborative proposals that engage multiple partners in the proposed activities, including sharing missions and goals, co-creating and sharing programs and services, and partnering in systems change.
