Funded by disbursements of the MAP Endowment Fund as in accordance with the Foundation for ACPE’s financial policy, MAP funding supports ACPE Psychotherapist and Practitioner members in the fulfillment of ACPE's mission/vision/values and ACPE's Strategic Initiatives.
MAP projects should lead to an advance in awareness and open new avenues of development for Pastoral Counseling/Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy (PC/SIP). Examples include:
1) Increased awareness by religious bodies of the mission, social concern, scope, and insights of PC/SIP,
2) Increased awareness across the spectrum of service/helping professions of the nature, capability, and availability of PC/SIP,
3) Increased awareness by the general public of PC/SIP.
In 2021, applicants are invited to submit a Letter of Inquiry to fund all or significant parts of MAP Fund projects that do not exceed $15,000. Projects that demonstrate ACPE's commitment to be an actively anti-racist organization are especially encouraged to apply. The most compelling projects will be invited to submit a full proposal. The deadline to submit the LOI is September 15, 2021.
