Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to Georgia nonprofits and government entities for healthcare programs that benefit local residents in eligible locations. New applicants and those applying for a previously unfunded project must attend a grant workshop prior to applying. Funding is intended for programs that benefit residents of Rockdale County.

The Hospital Authority of Rockdale County invests in programs and projects that improve the physical and mental health of Rockdale County residents, particularly those who are indigent, uninsured, or underinsured as well as other vulnerable populations. Grant proposals are encouraged to focus on one or more of the categories below (listed in order of HARC’s priorities):

Tier 1:

  • Medical and Dental Care Access (to support charitable clinics and other nonprofit organizations directly providing physical and dental healthcare promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment services to the medically underserved, and to assist indigent clients of nonprofit agencies with prescription and physician costs, including required co-pays)
  • Behavioral/Mental Health Treatment, Prevention and Intervention Services (to expand the availability of services to assist underserved individuals experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, emotional or behavioral disruption, adjustment difficulties, psychiatric illness, etc.)
  • Non-Emergency Healthcare Transportation (for indigent residents in need of transportation to physical and mental healthcare service providers)

​Tier 2:

  • Health Screening and Prevention (for agencies to enable their clients to obtain recommended physical exams and health screenings)
  • Family Planning, Prenatal Care and Positive Parenting (particularly for at-risk populations)
  • Respite Care and Other Support Services for People with Disabilities

Tier 3:

  • Healthy Lifestyles (to promote proper nutrition, physical fitness, smoking cessation, etc.)
  • Health Professional Education (to address a shortage of practitioners necessary to meet the community’s needs)
  • Emergency Response (training and tools to empower citizens to assist others with medical emergencies)

Immediate Need Grants: Immediate Need Grants are intended to fund one-time, unplanned projects or events to address a pressing need or to mitigate emergency situations, such equipment failure or safety issues. The application deadlines and procedures for traditional grants are waived for Immediate Need Grants.

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. Grantees will be provided with a copy of a Resolution, adopted by the Authority on March 26, 2013, that offers suggested guidelines in determining if an individual is a Rockdale County resident. Each grant recipient will be required to submit a sworn affidavit to the Authority evidencing compliance with the Authority’s residency requirement.
- Organization is current with all reporting requirements for prior Health TRUST Rockdale grants. Organizations with past-due grant evaluations reports are not eligible to apply until reporting requirements are fulfilled provided that the reports are submitted within 90 days of the due date. Organizations that submit reports more than 90 days after the due date are ineligible to apply for a Health TRUST Rockdale grant for a period of 24 months from the date the report was submitted. Organizations that submit reports on two consecutive grants more than 90 days after the due dates are ineligible to apply for a Health TRUST Rockdale grant for a period of 48 months from the date the last report was submitted. Reports must include all requested information to be considered complete.

Pre-proposal Conference:

January 24 – February 19, (July 11 - 30)*: Pre-Proposal Conferences/Orientation Sessions Held

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. If seeking repeat funding, applicants must notify HARC’s executive director via email or phone of their intent to apply. Due to COVID, pre-proposal conferences will be held by phone or through Zoom.
