Grants ranging from $5,000 to $40,000 to Central Oklahoma nonprofits for direct preventative and basic healthcare services for underserved populations. Applicants must submit a preliminary request to apply by March 26, 2018.

Eligible requests are those that support existing services or new direct service programs. The programs should target populations who otherwise do not have access to services.

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.

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 home health care and palliative care for individuals who can be cared for in a home setting and who are without access to health insurance or other support for palliative care.
- 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.

Priority will be given to projects that leverage other resources and that demonstrate cooperation between two or more organizations. Projects that reduce the need for future services are welcomed.

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.

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.
