Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) Phase II Milestone 3 Achieved

Family Proud visited the Mountain Home Air Force Base in Mountain Home, Idaho this month to present the completion of another milestone to the 366th Wing MUNS and MXG units. This represents the completion and funding of three out of five milestones to be completed for the Air Force under this $750,000 SBIR grant. As we move into the next phase of this engagement, we will be working closely with the Airmen Support Teams (AST) of both units to test and validate the Family Proud platform’s ability to support airmen and facilitate communication with established resources. We are excited to move forward with the Mountain Home team to develop and roll out Family Proud on a much broader base!

This opportunity will provide an additional $750,000 - $1.2M of non-dilutive funding to Family Proud as we support resilience efforts through through increased engagement and education around mental health support initiatives.
