-Strengthen organizations providing health care services that enhance the quality of health care

2) Meeting behavioral health needs. In particular, programs designed to:

-Provide mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment services
-Promote the integration of behavioral health services with primary care

3) Promotion of the health and well-being of children and families. In particular, programs designed to:

-Support vulnerable populations, such as victims of abuse and violence, through primary care, legal services, behavioral health care, rapid response services, training and education
-Address issues of maternal and child health such as prenatal care, parenting education, childhood obesity and hunger
-Provide integrated/full access to oral health services and oral health prevention programs
-Promote proper nutrition through increased access to healthy food

4) Education, training and advocacy to improve health care outcomes. In particular, programs designed to:

-Train providers to identify and treat abuse, trauma, behavioral health issues and substance abuse
-Advocate for changes in policies and practices that will improve access to needed services
-Produce a larger and better-trained health care workforce to enhance quality of care

The following types of Grants are available:

1) Program Support Grants - The development and expansion of programs that address the Foundation’s priorities and support the Foundation’s values, in particular programs that enhance and augment health care services to the vulnerable and underserved.

2) General Operating Support Grants - General operating support to well-established, financially sound, high-performing organizations that have received funding from the Foundation over three or more years and have met or exceeded program goals. General operating support will not exceed 10 percent of an organization’s annual budget, or $50,000 annually, whichever is less.

3) Multi-year Grants - The Foundation may approve a limited number of multi-year (two- or three-year) grants subject to at least annual review, approval of grantee progress, financial performance and the availability of Foundation funds. Support in any one year does not commit the Foundation to continue funding such grants in subsequent years.

After the first year, multi-year grant recipients must submit an interim progress report for each subsequent year of funding. The progress report should include a narrative report and a financial report that adhere to the grant report guidelines. The narrative report should provide a summary of the entire project and describe the degree to which objectives were met in the first year. The financial report should include an accounting of the use of the Foundation’s funds in the first year.
