Overview:

Funding Priorities of the Fall Grants Round - 2018

Our 2018 Fall Funding Priorities will focus on Health and Wellbeing (formerly known as “Health and Human Services”), and on Cultural Vibrancy (formerly known as “Arts”).


Health and Wellbeing:

Result: All people are healthy and safe.


We will work to improve the following outcomes in our communities:  

  • Homelessness; 
  • Food Security; 
  • Safety;   
  • Access to health care;
  • Healthy Neighborhood Living Conditions.

Through direct service, policy advocacy and/or collaboration efforts, priority strategies will address:

  • Emergency housing and shelter for homeless and at-risk populations.
  • (permanent and transitional housing solutions are covered in the Economic Security and Opportunities AOI). 
  • Access to affordable and high-quality food including food banks, pantries, and community centers that distribute food and promote healthy eating and work to address “food deserts.”
  • Efforts to ensure safety for vulnerable populations including domestic violence and child abuse prevention, bullying prevention in schools, safety issues specific to immigrant populations, low wage workers and communities of color.
  • Access to health services including programs providing un- and under-insured populations with culturally appropriate and equitable access to quality health and wellness services, including behavioral health (including addiction services), senior services and groups working on cultural and generational trauma.
    • Priority will be given to efforts applying a social determinants of health lens to the work.
  • Building healthy communities including built environment and infrastructure, environmental quality (toxins and air quality), affordable and reliable transportation, parks and recreation.
  • Systems change including public policy, civic engagement, community organizing or public information to improve health and wellbeing of local residents.

Cultural Vibrancy:

Result: Cultural Vibrancy is celebrated and reflected in the community.


We will work to improve the following outcomes in our communities:

  • Sense of community – residents feeling connected to the community and each other;  
  • Openness and acceptance of the community toward people of diverse backgrounds;
  • Diverse participation in art and cultural community programs and events;
  • Preservation and strengthening of cultural and historical heritage, traditions, and a creative economy.

Through direct service, policy advocacy and/or collaboration efforts, priority strategies will address: 

  • Lifting up and preserving cultural and historical heritage, tradition, and assets of the region;  
  • Using art as a bridge to communicate across cultures and languages and build transformational relationships to advance equity; 
  • Using art, culture, language, and community stories to shift narratives, shape public conversations, and influence policy; 
  • Improving access to arts and cultural programs to benefit youth and families who otherwise would not have the opportunities; 
  • Systems change including public policy, civic engagement, community organizing or public information to preserve and strengthen the arts and cultural segment of the creative economy locally.
