The Montana Mental Health Access Fund provides funding to mental health service providers in Montana to support innovative ideas for increasing access and improving mental health and well-being for residents, with special emphasis on rural and tribal communities, and other remote, hard-to-reach areas and populations.

Funded projects must:

  • Improve or increase access to mental health services, including leveraging technology such as telehealth and other resources to meet the need in their community
  • Reduce barriers to accessing mental health services including geographic, demographic, and economic barriers
  • Provide mental health services associated with the grant at no cost to the patient
  • Be long-term and sustainable solutions to increasing access to mental health
  • Fill a need that other available resources in the community cannot meet
  • Serve a region or population of high need, as measured by the existence of health disparities, poor access to mental health services, economic hardship, and geographic remoteness
  • Be focused on assisting vulnerable populations within the community, such as children, older adults, communities of color, low-income households, the uninsured and people with disabilities

Eligible applicants are Montana-based mental health service providers, including:

  • Health clinics
  • Mental health centers
  • Hospitals
  • Social service agencies
  • Nonprofits
  • Schools
  • Individuals licensed to provide mental health services
