About the Foundation
- Target Condition or Health Services Situation – Identify and describe a target clinical condition, preventive care issue or the health services utilization situation as the target for this proposal. Discuss why this is important to your community, and the major social determinants that may be associated with this condition or health services utilization pattern in your community. If the target is a clinical condition, describe the nationally-recognized performance measures (e.g. UDS clinical measures, HEDIS measures. other) that are associated with this condition. If the target is a utilization situation such as high ED utilization or high readmission rates, describe the source of the readily available data related to this situation.
- Population of Focus –
- Describe the population of focus for the selected condition or situation (i.e. registered patients only, patients in designated health plan, residents of a designated geographic area, etc.). Describe what is currently known about target condition or situation in your population of focus.
- Describe which social determinants of health are important factors influencing the selected condition or utilization pattern in the target population.
- Intervention – Propose an evidence-informed intervention addressing the role of multiple partners in a coordinated approach to the selected condition or situation. Include at least one approach to address one or more social determinants related to the clinical condition or the utilization situation. If the target is a clinical condition, discuss the management of at least one related prevention strategy as applicable as well as the coordinated approach for ongoing care management. If the target is a services utilization situation (i.e. ED over-utilization, high readmission rate, etc.) describe the proposed intervention among the key stakeholder partners, i.e. health center, health department, hospital, health plan, payor partners, etc.
- Partnerships – Briefly describe the designated partnerships that support the grant activities and promote the objectives of both sharing knowledge and strengthening strategies to expand and sustain population health capacity. This can either be taking one or more existing partnerships to the next level, or providing evidence of one or more viable new partnerships with documented agreements to collaborate, as may be evidenced by data collection and timely sharing of patient population information for care coordination, etc. These partners may include Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs), Regional Extension Centers (RECs) or other organizations engaged in supporting CHC adoption and implementation of HIT to support quality improvement.
The Foundation expects to fund five (5) awards under this program, with grant awards of approximately $125,000 per award, including up to 10% for indirect costs. Requests should not exceed $125,000. The Foundation anticipates making these awards for single year funding. Grantees that fulfill year one requirements may be funded for a second year to bring ideas to scale or replicate interventions at additional sites.

- Entities that are currently designated by the HHS’ Health Resources and Services Administration’s (“HRSA’s”) Bureau of Primary Health Care as federally-qualified health centers (“FQHCs”) or FQHC Look-Alikes, as well as state or regional Primary Care Associations (PCAs) are solely eligible to receive these awards.
- PCAs are required to subgrant to FQHCs or FQHC-Look-Alikes a portion of any project award.
- FQHC applicants must document that the entity is currently ‘in good standing’ as a FQHC with the Bureau of Primary Health Care by attaching a copy of the most recent Notice of Grant Award from HRSA or as a Look-Alike by attaching a copy of the current Designation Letter from HRSA.
- To meet the Foundation’s funding requirements, all applicants must also submit proof of their federal tax exemption as 501(c)(3) tax exempt not-for-profit organizations.
- Please note that while the applicant must be a designated FQHC, Look-Alike, or state/regional PCA working with FQHCs or Look-Alikes, the Foundation is seeking collaborative proposals.
- Applicants should include other entities in the proposed project, such as other health centers, or public health agencies, hospitals or managed care organizations.
- While we recognize that some organizations projects may require facility development in support of population health management initiatives, this LOI is not geared toward capital, facilities, or significant infrastructure needs, or toward initiatives focused strictly on data analysis.
