The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funding for a community-based mental health-educational outreach program targeting African Americans in Los Angeles County, California. This population underutilizes mental health intervention services despite their high risk of developing mental health abnormities. The California Endowment was chosen as a potential funder due to its commitment to improving the health of Californians; the host agency Alma Family Services, shares in the commitment to early prevention and intervention. The program will provide resource information to reduce barriers to treatment and to increase awareness. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
