The Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group (NNMHGG) is a joint initiative of Con Alma and the Hospital Auxiliary of Los Alamos Medical Center. NNMHGG awards grants of up to $15,000 to eligible nonprofits that target the unmet healthcare needs of the people of Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and northern Santa Fe Counties.

NNMHGG Grant Cycle

NNMHGG Grants support a wide range of programs/projects, initiatives and organizations that address the needs left unmet by the sale of Los Alamos Medical Center. These needs are detailed in “Data for Grantmaking: A Comparative Study of Community Health”. NNMHGG Grants are not likely to be awarded for projects with activities replacing public sector health-related services. Services that supplement or expand health-related services of the public sector are accepted. Examples include, but are not limited, to:

  • Improve the health status and rights of diverse populations and Northern New Mexico communities in Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, and northern Santa Fe Counties.
    • “Northern Santa Fe County” excludes both the city and areas south of Santa Fe.
  • Increase access to health and health care services
  • Advocate for health policy
  • Increase community wellness and health equity
  • A specific program/project, an initiative or general operations of an organization’s overall mission.
