Grants to Hamilton, Ontario organizations, institutions, and agencies to fund innovative community health research, with a focus on research and collaborations involving respiratory health issues.
This fund is intended to support innovative applied or participatory research in community health by:

- Encompassing a broad definition of health that incorporates lifestyle, social, physical and economic environments, health promotion and disease prevention
- Promoting partnerships and collaboration between researchers and community organizations, agencies and institutions
- Promoting the dissemination of acquired knowledge among community organizations, agencies, and institutions.

Additional priorities include:

- Health promotion and disease prevention (enabling people to improve their health by creating conditions in communities for health)
- Building a healthy community (collaborations for safe, caring, healthy, inclusive communities)
- Integration of best practice in health and social services (dissemination of acquired knowledge and research findings in ways that assist decision makers and practitioners).

As a Public Foundation, the community foundation is restricted by the Income Tax Act to make grants or distributions only to Registered Charitable Organizations. CCRA has recently requested that the relationship between the charity (Lead Partner) and the non-charitable organization (the agent) be formalized and documented before a grant can be awarded.

An organization that is not a Registered Charity wishing to apply for funding from the community foundation may consider the following:

1) Make formal application to CCRA to become a Registered Charity, or

2) Establish a partnership or agency relationship with a Registered Charity (RC) who would act as a ‘sponsor’ for the organization and the proposed project.

(i) The relationship must be a formal arrangement set out in writing between the Boards of Directors of the RC and the Org.

(ii) The terms of the agreement should include:

- A full description of the project
- Providing responsibility to RC for insuring the project is completed by the Org as described.
- That RC has responsibility for distribution of funds to Org as work progresses
- That RC has responsibility/accountability to CF for performance of Org

(iii) The relationship must be an appropriate link, not simply one of convenience.
