Grants of up to $50,000 to Georgia nonprofits, hospitals, and quasi-governmental agencies to improve healthcare access and outcomes among vulnerable populations. Funding is intended to support existing direct healthcare programs and services in both clinical and community settings.

The Foundation has selected three high-burden costly chronic diseases that have proven evidence-based interventions and will award grants that utilize a best practice, promising approach, or evidence-based program that address:
- Asthma
- Cardiovascular disease, with an emphasis on heart disease and stroke
- Diabetes

The purpose of the 2019 Direct Services Grant Program is to promote health and well-being and to prevent and manage chronic diseases (asthma, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes) across the lifespan of all Georgians with attention to vulnerable populations.

The 2019 Direct Services Grant Program supports new or existing evidence-based, promising approaches or best practice healthcare services or health promotion programs in both community and clinical settings. Expansion of existing healthcare services or health promotion programs based on effective interventions is also allowable. If requesting funds for a new program or expanding an existing program, the applicant must clearly demonstrate the ability to support and sustain the program beyond the requested funding from the Foundation.
