Tower Mental Health Foundation announces grant opportunity

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the Tower Mental Health Foundation today announced that they are soliciting grant applications for projects and activities that support mental health services in Kansas.

Eligible grant applicants include 501(c)(3) organizations or educational institutions that provide mental health care treatment and services to the residents of Kansas.

Grants totaling $62,000 will be awarded by the Foundation. Applications are available on the Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov/tower. Completed applications must be received by August 15.

The Tower Mental Health Foundation of Kansas was created as a result of an agreement between the Attorney General’s Office and the Menninger Foundation in 2007. It offers support to organizations that provide mental health services to Kansas.

The Attorney General is the sole member of the Foundation, which is staffed by the Office of the Attorney General. The Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of nine Kansans with a keen interest in mental health issues. Dr. Walter Menninger serves as the Board’s president.
