Grants ranging from $20,000 to $30,000 to non-profits in Oregon, and the Washington Counties of Clark, Skamania, Wahkiakum, Cowlitz and Pacific, to strengthen community leadership, infrastructure and organizations. Interested applicants must submit an Intent to Apply by October 3, 2014. Funds are intended to support activities that help communities prepare to apply for a future five-year partnership with Northwest Health Foundation.
Grants support work like this (but not only like this):
-Build or strengthen working relationships between organizations and leaders.
-Involve community members in developing priorities, increasing their knowledge and engaging their leaders, supporting them with logistics whenever necessary.
-Strengthen community or organizational infrastructure necessary for effective collaboration across groups and sectors.
-Spending time one-on-one or in groups to build common understanding among stakeholders who will need to be at the table to address Healthy Beginnings+Healthy Communities outcomes.
These grants are not intended to support:
-Efforts that do not include the leadership of communities served.
-Direct-service to community members through existing or new programs.
A portion of Organizing Grant funds must support sending multiple representatives to two regional gatherings of funded partners in 2015. The regional gatherings will focus on building relationships, exposure to essential concepts about early life and health, policy, advocacy, leadership development and other objectives to be identified by participants.
At the end of the Organizing Grants, communities will be ready to apply for 5-year partnerships by demonstrating that they have:
-Engaged their partners and identified their level of commitment for working toward HBHC objectives.
-Engaged in intentional discussions about the (potential) role of advocacy, policy and civic engagement in their work.
-Identified their interest and potential contribution to building strong multicultural alliances to achieve common goals.
