This Is My Brave - Napa Valley: Grant Applications Now Open!

This Is My Brave – Napa Valley Now Accepting Grant Applications for Healing Teen Mental Health Through Art

Individuals, groups, and 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for the This Is My Brave – Napa Valley (TIMB-NV) Mental Health grant program focusing on “Healing Teen Mental Health Through Art.” Proposals from teens will be accepted if they include an adult mentor.

TIMB-NV will grant funds to new projects that incorporate the arts in addressing mental health/addiction conditions among pre-teens/teens in the Napa Valley community. These new grants are available from a portion of the proceeds of the February 2020 TIMB-NV show that featured Napa Valley teens and young adults sharing their stories of mental health recovery through original poetry, storytelling, music, and dance.

Grant applications will be available on August 23 and accepted until September 20 at 5 p.m. Financial administration of the grants will be provided by Arts Council Napa Valley. Information on the grant guidelines and applications can be found on at For more information, contact

Four granting workshops will address questions regarding the application process. On August 31, workshops will be held at 2:00pm and 5:00pm at CrossWalk Community Church, 2590 1st Street, Napa. A second series of workshops will be held on September 1 at 11:00 am and 5:00 pm at Aldea Children and Family Services, 1542 First Street, Napa. To register for these workshops, contact
