Please note that these are only examples, and we will gladly consider funding other types of projects if they meet our basic selection criteria.
- Strategic and business planning:
- One-year planning grants that will result in a viable plan to fund and implement programming to address an important health issue.
- Partnerships outside the health sector:
- Proposals that seek to build partnerships with organizations beyond the health sector (for example: schools, local businesses, community and economic developers, or departments of planning and transportation) to build strong, resilient communities and address issues, such as poor housing, limited opportunities for youth engagement, community support for seniors, unemployment, or access to healthful foods.
- Upstream influences on health and well-being:
- Projects that address access to healthful food, housing, transportation, and other upstream influences on health and well-being.
Under this CFP, we are offering grants between $10,000 and $50,000 for projects implemented within a 12-month period, and grants up to $100,000 for projects implemented within a 24-month period. All grants will be awarded through a one-step application process offered twice in 2018, with a possibility of a third opportunity in the fall.
