Examples of eligible expenses include:

- Specific medical personnel or program staff salaries;
- Medical equipment;
- Medical Facility Upgrades;
- Special training, and;
- Outreach Programs (to educate the public about particular health problems).

The Mary McClellan Foundation Board will review and rank all applications and recommend selection of awardees.
