Seed Grant Program 2015 Award Recipients!

In 2013, the Magellan Behavioral Health annual Seed Grant program began with the goal to collaboratively support Louisiana organizations in the development of services centered on recovery and resiliency principles throughout the state. In 2015, the evidence is clear that this is a shared passion among our partners! Our most recent announcement for Seed Grant submissions resulted in 47 applications, double the previous year’s submissions. The applications received once again highlighted the community interest in enhancing and sustaining programs focused on peer-centered support in across Louisiana. Proposals submitted focused on rural outreach, innovative therapy solutions and anti-stigma campaigns.
