Grants to Further APF’s Priorities

APF Visionary and Weiss grants seek to seed innovation through supporting research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in the following priority areas: 

  • Understanding and fostering the connection between mental and physical health to ensure well-being; 

  • Reducing stigma and prejudice to promote unity and harmony; 

  • Understanding and preventing violence to create a safer, more humane world; and 

  • Supporting programs that address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of disaster. 

One-year Visionary grants are available in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. Additionally, a $5,000 Raymond A. and Rosalee G. Weiss Innovative Research and Programs Grant is also available for any program that falls within APF’s priority areas.

Applicants must be affiliated with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.

The application deadline is March 15.
