Apply for Funding

We support efforts that create access and opportunity in underserved communities.

Each of our programs focuses on specific areas so we ask that you begin by learning more about the program that best fits your project.  

Current and upcoming grant opportunities are identified here. Please note additional grant opportunities are open only to applicants invited by program staff members.

A number of our program teams do invite applications for specific efforts through a “request for proposals” process.

We encourage interested organizations to stay in touch though email subscription, RSS, or social media. Email subscribers will be notified within hours of updates about new grant opportunities.

Health

Developing healthy places

Funding opportunities are available in our "healthy housing and neighborhoods" area for organizations working to address:

  • Policies, systems change and communication to connect health and housing.
  • Policies that promote healthy housing and mitigate the impacts of substandard housing.
  • Innovative investments that connect community development, health and housing.

We accept and review these proposals on an ongoing basis. There is no deadline.

 

We expect to launch a competitive request for proposals in our healthy food systems area in the fall of 2015.

Accelerating community-centered approaches to health

Funding opportunities are available in our Innovative population health programs and policies area for organizations that:

  • Take advantage of the opportunities within health reform to employ new models of shared resources and accountability for improving population health.
  • Systematically incentivize and reward primary prevention – for example, by reinvesting downstream health care savings in effective community prevention.
  • Share and use data from multiple sectors to inform strategies, measure progress and refine interventions.
  • Have the potential to inform practice and policy more broadly.

 

We accept and review these proposals on an ongoing basis. There is no deadline.
