A competitive grant opportunity, Developing Capacity Through Trauma Informed Care, seeks to increase the number of Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) residential provider agencies who have implemented a trauma-informed approach, and are committed to serving people with complex support needs; this will result in better outcomes for people and organizations. Awardees agree to develop and implement a plan to increase their capacity to serve individuals with complex needs using a trauma-informed approach, report progress and data, have at least one staff member who is a trained Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) trainer, and participate in conferences and trainings such as the Regional TIC Collaborative.
This grant expands the work of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) and DODD’s partnership on a statewide TIC Initiative. This initiative aims to expand opportunities for Ohioans to receive trauma-informed interventions by increasing efforts for practitioners, facilities, and agencies to become competent in trauma informed practices.
Applications are due October 5. More information, including the complete details of the grant, is available on the Initiatives and Partnerships page of DODD’s website
