Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $5,000 to $40,000 to Central Oklahoma nonprofits for direct preventative and basic healthcare services for underserved populations. Applicants must request an invitation to apply prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support existing services or new direct service programs. The programs should target populations that otherwise do not have access to services. Projects that reduce the need for future services are welcomed.

Goals and Objectives:
1. To support health care services for individuals who lack access due to economic, social, or geographic reasons.
2. To encourage prevention services for individuals at risk of chronic health conditions.
3. Priority will be given to projects that leverage other resources and that demonstrate cooperation between two or more organizations.

One-time grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations for programs that provide direct services that:
- Provide primary, diagnostic or preventive services for individuals without access to medical, dental or mental health services. This would include prescription drugs and other treatments provided under the supervision of a health or mental health clinic.
- Provide screening and evaluation services for early detection or prevention of chronic or serious medical conditions.
- Provide therapeutic services for patients with Parkinson’s disease or severe arthritic conditions.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants will be in the range of $5,000 to $40,000.

Term of Contract:

No multiple year funding commitments will be made.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides direct health care services and has a governing board based in the central Oklahoma area is eligible to apply.

Those who qualify for other programs would be a lower priority. Programs should be generally open and not restricted by residency or membership.

Previous grantees can re-apply for additional funding for up to three years if program was successfully completed and proposed goals were achieved. Those who are applying for a renewal must state sustainability goals for the program or services funded by OCCF.

No grants will be made for capital campaigns, fund-raising events, research projects, and the purchase of vehicles or for clinical equipment or facility construction. Lower priority will be given to support administrative needs such as occupancy, communications, computer equipment, and overhead.
