Skaggs Foundation Priority Health Needs Grants

The Priority Health Needs Grant program invests in collaborative outcome-based approaches designed to address an identified community health need as defined through local assessments and based on pertinent data. The Priority Health Needs Grant program is an opportunity for agencies to propose solutions they believe can have measureable impact on their community’s health in a defined period of time. 

The award floor is $5,001 and there is no award ceiling. Requests can be made for up to a three year period although funding is committed for one year at a time. Future funding is contingent upon program results and funding availability.
