Grants will be given to support the implementation of direct psychological services/programs that 1) are not eligible or likely to receive financial support from other funding agencies, and 2) are not likely to be delivered without the funding support. Examples of the type of services/programs CECP is seeking to support include, but in no way are limited to:  

  • Services that provide evidence-based training to community serving organizations
