Diversity Inclusion Project Showcase
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Diversity Inclusion Projects Showcase (DIPS) initiative aims to connect a more diverse pool of historically marginalized populations to grant funding opportunities by providing the chance to showcase their goals and populations served, to federal and state leaders, as well as philanthropic partners in a round robin-style of innovation.
The DIPS model helps to connect community-based organizations (CBOs) to funders and advocates at all levels (e.g., federal, philanthropic organizations, stakeholders, and communities).
As a convener, SAMHSA has the ability to assemble CBOs/local nonprofits serving historically marginalized populations with the intention of enhancing the visibility and viability of these entities through the cultivation of partnerships.
DIPS categories may include:
- Faith-based organizations
- Older adults
- Pregnant and parenting women
- Reentry and justice
- Serious mental illness
- Workforce development
