Grants for up to $50,000 to inform about and assist in preventing heart disease for women in the United States. The mission of the foundation is to improve health, by forming and facilitating public-private partnerships for biomedical research and training. The purpose of this funding is to equip community organizations to use The Heart Truth materials, messages, and tools in combination with their own organizational programs to assist women to identify personal risk factors for heart disease and to motivate them to take action to lower their risk by taking steps to adopt a heart healthy lifestyle through skill-building, goal-setting, and social support. This multifaceted campaign, which evolved through extensive formative research, primarily targets women aged 40-60.

Priority will be given to applications that propose programs/activities that not only raise awareness of the issue of heart disease in women but also provide actionable steps, follow up, and support for women to lower their risk of heart disease. In addition, priority will also be give to applications that propose to reach women of color, low income, or in rural areas. The Heart Truth campaign focuses on heart disease, particularly coronary heart disease, and not on cardiovascular disease (which includes stroke).
