Grants starting at $50,000 to New York nonprofit and for-profit organizations to improve the health of State residents. An inquiry form must be submitted prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support health projects benefiting New Yorkers at a local, regional, or statewide level.
The Special Projects Fund supports projects that fit the Foundation's mission but that are outside their main priority and focus areas (Building Healthy Communities, Empowering Health Care Consumers, and Veterans' Health).
Projects are coordinated interventions over a specified period of time to achieve measurable results. Although projects that have an impact within one organization or community are eligible, this RFP places emphasis on initiatives that have a large-scale regional or statewide impact on New York State’s health system.
Projects Eligible for Funding Should Include:
GrantWatch ID#: 179490
Approximately 5 to 15 organizations are funded annually.
Funding requests can range from $50,000 to a maximum of $400,000. Special Projects Fund grants are typically in the $250,000 range.
Project durations vary but typically are 12 to 36 months. The duration must be commensurate with project activities.
Special Projects Fund awards should be considered one-time, nonrenewable funding opportunities. Only in exceptional circumstances would NYSHealth consider making an additional grant for a project that has been previously funded.
