Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no stated maximum for Health Trust Rockdale Grant; any reasonable amount associated with implementing an eligible project or program may be considered.

For Immediate Need Grants, requests may not exceed $3,000.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must meet the following requirements to be eligible:
- Organization is a nonprofit that is exempt under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or is a governmental entity or a unit thereof. It should be noted that grants will be awarded to governmental entities only when, in the sole view of the Authority’s Board of Trustees, the application proposes an enhancement of health-related services that will advance the Authority’s objectives; grants will not be awarded when sought as an alternative funding source for programs or projects historically funded by the governmental entity.
- Organization serves Rockdale County residents. HARC funds may be used for the benefit of Rockdale County residents only.
- Organization is current with all reporting requirements for prior Health TRUST Rockdale grants.

Pre-proposal Conference:

Participation in a pre-proposal conference is mandatory for all new applicants. Previous grantees also must register for a pre-proposal conference if they are seeking funds for a program or project not previously funded.

Conferences will be held January 13 - 31, 2020.

Pre-Application Information:

Completed grant applications must be submitted to HARC no later than 5 p.m. on February 7 (August 7 for Cycle II).

If seeking repeat funding, applicants must notify HARC’s executive director via email or phone of their intent to apply.

Organizations must meet pre-application deadlines (including registering for a pre-proposal conference and/or notifying the director of intent to apply) and must submit applications by 5 p.m. on the due date. In the event of an emergency, the organization must notify the executive director immediately and may be permitted to submit the application electronically by 5 p.m. on the due date, provided that four hard copies are delivered within three business days. Aside from this concession for emergencies, late applications will NOT be accepted.

Applicants may apply for one Health TRUST Rockdale grant per calendar year in either of two grant cycles for a specific project or program. If an organization is in need of funding for an additional project or program with a different objective, a second application may be submitted during the next grant cycle.

There is no lifetime limit to the number of Health TRUST Rockdale grants that may be awarded to an organization; however, grantees are strongly encouraged to develop a sustainability plan that includes pursuing other funding sources so that the continuance of a program does not rely on HARC funds.
