The American Counseling Association Foundation is seeking proposals from American Counseling Association members for grants of up to $500.

In response to the double pandemic of COVID-19 and systemic racism that our nation is combatting today, the ACA Foundation is able to provide up to ten awards for $500 for the January 2021 grant cycle. Grant proposals related to the eradication of systemic racism and/or support for professional counselors who are working with clients impacted by racism, oppression, discrimination, and COVID-19 related proposals will be prioritized. 

The following criteria must be met:

  • Applicants must be an active member of the American Counseling Association currently working as a counselor or counselor educator, or enrolled as a graduate student in a counseling program.
  • If a team of applicants submits an application packet, at least one applicant on the team must be an active ACA member when the application is submitted.
  • Applicants are required to answer all of the questions included in the online form and to submit a preliminary budget detailing the use of the requested funds.
