Minority Fellowship Program in Jeopardy
June 4, 2018 by NBCC Government Affairs
The President’s 2019 fiscal year budget eliminated funding for the SAMHSA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). The program provides scholarships to minority mental health and addiction professionals in the fields of counseling, psychiatry, psychology, social work, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and addictions.

Congress increased funding for the MFP in last year’s spending bill and has grown the program several times over the past five years. Lawmakers are currently setting funding levels for the 2019 fiscal year and it is important that they hear from their constituents about the importance of the MFP. Visit our Grassroots Action Center today and let your legislators know how important this program is to vulnerable individuals.
