VA issues Notice of Funding Opportunity for Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant Program

WASHINGTON — As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs and White House national suicide prevention efforts April 15 VA published a Notice of Funding Opportunity for approximately $51,750,000 in suicide prevention grants.

Under Section 201 of the Commander John Scott Hannon Veterans Mental Health Care Improvement Act, grants will be awarded to organizations that provide or coordinate suicide prevention services for Veterans at risk of suicide and the families of those Veterans.

“Communities are important partners in our work to end Veteran suicide,” said VA Secretary Denis McDonough. “The Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant Program will fund programs in local communities that provide suicide prevention services and resources to Veterans and their families along with ensuring Veterans have access to our community partners who know how to reach them.”

Organizations may apply for grants worth up to $750,000 as well as apply to renew awards from year to year throughout the length of the three-year community-based grant program. VA will host a technical assistance webinar for grant applicants.

The Notice of Funding Opportunity provides information about the Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant Program eligibility and award process.
