Funding News and Grant Tips

Hogg Foundation Releases New Report on Mental Health in Texas
Navigating the behavioral health delivery system in Texas can be a daunting prospect for even the most informed providers and clinicians. For consumers, policymakers and families, the need for comprehensive information on the mental health services provided through multiple state agencies is critical for informed policy decision making.
The Hogg Foundation isn’t just a grantmaking foundation. We are also committed to educating the public about the mental health landscape in Texas. Our just released report, A Guide to Understanding Mental Health Systems and Services in Texas 2012, is intended to serve as a useful tool to understanding the Texas behavioral health system. The report aims to provide a general overview of the behavioral health care delivery system and the services provided under the various agencies that make up our state’s complex system of behavioral health services. Our hope is that this report will live on as a useful reference for people who wish to better understand the programs that exist to serve those with mental health or substance use conditions.
The report is divided into six main parts:
* National Context: A basic overview of national activities related to behavioral health services.
* The Texas Environment: A summary of what is happening at the state level with respect to behavioral health services, including a description of new programs and organizational approaches to care. Certain recent developments in Texas, some of which will require action during the 2013 session of the Texas Legislature, are discussed.
* Public Behavioral Health Services in Texas: There are multiple state agency programs that provide a range of behavioral health services. We summarize these in this section.
* Medicare and Private Insurance: A description of benefits and requirements for behavioral health services under Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance plans.
* Best Practices and Policy Priorities: A discussion of behavioral health best practices and current policy priorities.
* Mental Health Workforce Shortages: An overview of the current mental health workforce and strategies for addressing the growing shortage of mental health service providers in Texas.
It is fitting that this report is hot off the presses in time for the 83rd session of the Texas Legislature, for it is our hope that this guide will serve as an educational and advocacy tool that will help to identify the challenges and opportunities inherent in the Texas behavioral health system for the benefit of policymakers, mental health professionals and consumers.
The Hogg Foundation welcomes comments and corrections as well as ideas for improving this guide. Comments should reference the applicable section and page number(s), and they ask that all factual corrections include citations or additional information. All comments and suggestions should be emailed to Hogg_Guide@austin.utexas.edu.

Study Finds Nonprofits Face Entrenched Fundraising Challenges
Many nonprofit organizations are hobbled by entrenched fundraising challenges that include high turnover and instability in key development positions, a dearth of qualified candidates to fill those positions, and a lack of organizational development capacity, a joint study by CompassPoint and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund finds.
Based on a survey of more than 2700 nonprofit executive directors and development directors, UnderDeveloped: A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising found that nonprofits tend to rely solely on their development director to raise funds; that fully half of the development directors surveyed said they expect to leave their current job within two years; and that 40 percent of development directors surveyed said they were not committed to a career in development. At nonprofits where the development director position was vacant, positions stayed open six months on average, while 16 percent of nonprofits reported that the post had been vacant for more than two years.
The study also found that nonprofits faced an inadequate talent pool when hiring a development director, with 53 percent of executive directors reporting that their most recent search attracted an insufficient number of qualified candidates. In addition, nearly one in three executives are lukewarm about, or dissatisfied with, the performance of their current development director, although leaders of organizations with operating budgets of at least $10 million tended to be more satisfied, with 41 percent saying they were "very satisfied," than leaders of organizations with budgets of less than $1 million (27 percent).
To break the cycle in which the absence of conditions for fundraising success leads to short tenures and volatility in the development function, which in turn prevents the organization from sustaining the revenue streams needed for success, the report calls for nonprofits and their stakeholders to embrace development as a critical organizational function, think creatively and leverage technological innovation to strengthen and diversify the talent pool, and share accountability for fundraising results.
