Two not-for-profit organizations have received micro-grants from the Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare (IABHC) Fund.

The first, La Frontera Center, provides mental health and substance abuse treatment services to underserved residents of Tucson and Pima County in Arizona. In 2016, La Frontera Center served approximately 18,000 clients, including children, adolescents, families, and adults with mental health and/or addiction disorders, as well as adults with serious mental illness.

The second grant recipient, Allegheny Health Network, was formed in 2013 by Highmark Health and is based in Pittsburgh. The Allegheny Health Network (AHN) includes eight hospitals and outpatient centers that serve 29 Pennsylvania counties and portions of New York, Ohio and West Virginia. The AHN Perinatal Hope Program provides integrated services to women who are dependent on or addicted to prescription and/or illicit drugs, leading to better pregnancy outcomes for mother and baby.

IABHC supports the behavioral health industry by awarding micro-grants to not-for-profit organizations, typically ranging from $5,000 to $10,000.
