NPA Awarded APA Small Organizational Grant

NPA is excited to announce we have again been awarded a Small State Organizational Grant from APA Services to help fund executive director salary and lobbyist services. This year’s grant, in the amount of $13,000, is especially essential in light of the significant increase of association resources needed to serve NPA members and Nebraska mental health practitioners during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.

During the Small State Organizational Grant cycle, the APA Practice Directorate received requests from 23 SPTAs for a total amount of funding that exceeded the pool of grant money available. The grant review process was carefully adjudicated by the Committee of State Leaders (CSL) which reports to the Board of Professional Affairs (BPA). As part of the review process CSL recognized the need of small states to receive assistance in maintaining central office operations.

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.
