Grants ranging from $15,000 to $40,000 to Virginia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for health care services and programs that reduce disparities in healthcare for vulnerable populations in the Richmond area. Eligible regions include the counties of Powhatan, Henrico, Hanover, Goochland, Chesterfield and the city of Rochmond. The Foundation will consider regional and statewide investments that align with and advance their mission.

The Trustees have identified three priority areas of funding, in addition to the Foundation’s long-term support for the region’s health safety net organizations including oral health, behavioral health, and new populations.

Richmond Memorial Health Foundation’s Board of Trustees adopted a four-point strategic framework in 2016 that preserves its commitment to access to health care while refocusing its vision more broadly to address deepening inequities in health outcomes and the socioeconomic conditions that contribute to these disparities.

In this grant cycle, RMHF invites proposals that seek to reduce health disparities for vulnerable populations within the Foundation’s service area, with priority given to applications that address one or more of the three priority areas noted above. Lower priority will be given to organizations that have received one or more grant investments from RMHF in the current fiscal year.

RMHF will consider proposals that incorporate one or more of the following strategies/approaches:
- Capacity building to more effectively apply a racial and ethnic equity lens to program design, implementation, evaluation, and/or communications
- Collaboration
- Community Engagement
- Policy and Advocacy
- Program Delivery: Enhancement, Expansion ,and/or Continuation

For more specific information on funding and strategies/approaches as well as adopted strategic framework view Supporting Documents.
