NPA Awarded APA Legislative Grant

NPA is excited to announce we have been awarded a Legislative Grant from APA Services, Inc. to help fund prescription privileges for psychologists legislation. This year’s grant is in the amount of $10,000, and will help fund lobbying and education efforts.

The legislative grants are administered by the APA Practice Directorate and the Committee for State Leaders (CSL), who weigh important factors such as the importance of the issue to the profession of psychology, the anticipated effectiveness of advocacy strategy, and financial need.

NPA very much appreciates the continued financial aid of the Practice Directorate and Committee of State Leaders (CSL), and their commitment to supporting small state associations especially during this time of overwhelming financial challenges.

Nebraska Psychological Association Statement in Response to the Killing of George Floyd

The Nebraska Psychological Association is outraged by the killing of Black people by law enforcement officers who have violated their oath to “Serve and Protect” by engaging in unprovoked violence.

Throughout 400 years of American history, racist power structures have perpetrated atrocities against Black and Brown people, including slavery, discrimination, and violence. This abuse of power and privilege is embedded in our institutions, policies, and laws which creates the climate, both for egregious and obvious crimes against people of color as well as for the corrosive injuries inflicted by discrimination and racial profiling.

Please read NPA's full statement HERE.
