Foundation / Corporation
Endowment for Health
Grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations, government agencies, colleges, universities, and schools to improve the health of state residents. This grant program is intended to offer responsive funding for projects that address emerging opportunities and urgent needs, innovative projects, and initiatives that build and disseminate knowledge to improve the health of New Hampshire’s people.
The Opportunity Grants program was established to meet community needs and opportunities outside the scope of the Endowment’s priority areas.
Priority will be given to projects that:
-Advance health equity for people who lack a fair opportunity to optimize their health potential for a variety of reasons including income, age, race, culture, ethnicity, disability, educational level, geography or sexual orientation.
-Leverage resources including other funding.
-Present a compelling case regarding the seriousness and urgency of the need.
-Identify realistic, attainable and measurable outcomes that address the identified need.
-Demonstrate the applicant’s ability to successfully implement the project.
-Involve collaboration with other organizations.
-Demonstrate sustainability, if applicable.
-Serve or have the potential to serve a wide geographic area of New Hampshire and/or a significant population of NH residents.
