Our Investment Options
MHB employs a variety of ways to disseminate funds to the community—funds that achieve tangible results for City residents:
Competitive Grants to non-profit organizations for three-year cycles
Initiatives address an important or emerging need, which MHB chooses to support
Investment Managers are projects that align with MHB’s priorities in which a lead agency is chosen to re-grant designated MHB funds to other direct service providers in a field of service for which the lead agency has distinct expertise
Funding Partnerships in which one or more other funders combine their resources with MHB to achieve greater impact
Permanent Supportive Housing provides funds for rehab or new-build housing units made in the form of 10-year forgivable loans to address needs for permanent housing by persons with serious emotional disorders
Strategic Initiatives that are consistent with MHB’s mission and priorities for which special funding is sought to address a compelling need not available through the tax funds
