Grants of up to $40,000 to Trumbull County, Ohio nonprofits, schools, churches, and agencies for innovative projects in the areas of hospice care and education, the needs of cancer patients and their families, diabetes treatment and prevention, and orthopedic care and support.

More details on the specific fund areas are as follows:

- Oncology Fund: This fund is used to support programs and projects that address needs of cancer patients and/or their families.

- Hospice Fund: This fund is used to support programs/projects that promote hospice services, care or education.

- Rose Hughes Diabetes Fund: This fund is used to support programs/projects that promote diabetes care, including prevention programs and education.

- Orthopedics Fund: This fund is used to support programs/projects that provide education, care and/or support for patients receiving orthopedic care.

- Wean Foundation Fund for Women’s and Children’s Health: The fund is used to support activities designed to improve the quality of women’s and children’s health in Trumbull County, Ohio, with a focus on underserved populations, particularly in the city of Warren. The intent is not to support organizations which have as their mission combatting specific diseases or conditions, but rather to address broader health issues such as, for example, infant mortality, low birth weight, access to women’s health care, healthy food, or other priorities identified by Trumbull County in their periodic community health assessments. Acknowledging that the County’s priorities are often aimed at larger societal issues which impact health, the TMHF is permitted to consider grants to address these barriers to health as well, to the extent that they affect women and children.

The fund encourages strategies which engage residents to be active participants in and advocates for their healthy lives. Therefore, grants to support advocacy at the local and state level around policy issues bearing on the target population (such as access to health insurance, etc.) may be considered.

While Trumbull County is the intended service area for distributions from this fund, applicants are encouraged to consider collaborative efforts which cross County lines, efforts which can lead to greater efficiencies and impact.

- Oncology Fund: Not above $10,000
- Hospice Fund: Not above $10,000
- Rose Hughes Diabetes Fund: Not above $2,000
- Orthopedics Fund: Not above $3,000
Wean Foundation Fund for Women’s and Children’s Health: Not above $40,000

Eligible applicants must be tax-exempt organizations under Internal Revenue Service 501(c)(3) or operate under the fiscal sponsorship of a tax-exempt non-profit, including schools, churches, and public organizations.

Interested applicants must review the Request for Proposal (RFP) and submit an application with supporting documentation on or before Friday, September 29, 2017 at 4:00 PM.

Final grant decisions will be announced in early December 2017.
