Grants of up to $25,000 to Kansas nonprofits, churches, and government agencies for programs that will enhance the health of state residents. Funding is focused on four key impact areas: healthy behaviors, educational attainment, civic and community engagement, and access to care.

2019 Request for Proposals designed to make progress toward one or more of these goals:
- Increased fourth-grade reading proficiency
- Increased access to healthcare
- Increased access to and consumption of healthy foods
- Increased physical activity
- Reduced tobacco use and exposure
- Foster civic and community engagement among Kansans working toward any of the above goals

KHF will consider proposals submitted for this Impact and Capacity Grants (ICG) Initiative Request for Proposals (RFP) opportunity designed to support either impactful projects or organizational capacity-building efforts from organizations that meet two basic criteria:
- The applicant organization’s mission aligns with KHF’s strategic focus to reduce disparities in one or more of the key impact areas.
- The applicant organization is actively working toward one or more of the stated goals of this RFP.

Available funding is designed to support:
- New effort(s), referring to a new project, initiative or other work in which the organization has not previously engaged
- Expansion effort(s), where the organization has identified a sustainable way to serve new populations or additional geographic areas, for example, through a previously-established program or initiative.

Pre-Application Information:

Proposals become available to users on May 1, 2019.

Proposals accepted between May 1, 2019, and August 30, 2019, by 5:00 PM CST, or until all funds have been expended.

Applicants are notified within 45 days of submitting their application.

Only one proposal may be submitted each year – either for an Impact Grant or for a Capacity-Building Grant.

If an organization already has an active ICG with KHF, it is eligible for an Impact or Capacity Building Grant provided they are not awarded in the same year.

Proposals must be submitted using the new Kansas Health Foundation Communities Portal.

If you or your organization submitted, applied or received funding from KHF prior to 2019, you must still register as a new user in the Communities Portal. We encourage to refer to the Frequently Asked Questions and view this video to help familiarize yourself with the new portal.

KHF is accepting applications from fiscal sponsors this year. If this situation applies to your request for funding, please make sure the application is submitted through a portal user account associated with the organization that is considered the fiscal sponsor.
