Grants ranging up to $100,000 awarded to promote a healthy Florida. Grants are strategically awarded to diverse, philanthropic, community-based solutions that: Improve program capacity and reduce barriers to access; Nurture community health leadership to reinforce local solutions, foster innovation and sustain quality; and
Leverage financial, human and other resources to maximize measurable impact.
IMPACT Health Care grants are rich in diversity, from mobile clinics to provide health care to children, to training physicians on women's heart disease symptoms, to improving the lives of Hispanics with diabetes. These grants educate, train and improve the lives of individuals and families throughout Florida.
The current focus for the IMPACT Health Care grants program is on community-based health clinics and outreach programs.
Within the community health clinic arena, we prefer to focus funding on:
•Philanthropic, innovative approaches to health care education, awareness and training programs, especially those that have a grassroots or community outreach component;
•Demonstration and/or research projects that attempt to find a new way to deliver health care or to increase access to health care services for the uninsured and underserved;
•Projects that use innovative techniques or use collaborative methods to address a specific problem in a geographic area or target population.
We will consider funding for:
•Direct health care services, but must not serve as a replacement for insurance reimbursements or as a supplement to insurance reimbursements from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida.
•General operating support alone or capital campaigns, but this is not a priority area.
•Equipment and supply purchases within proposals.
