Grants to Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana nonprofit organizations and governmental and public entities, including schools, for health initiatives that benefit the community based on local community health needs assessments. Priority will be given to programs in the areas of older adults and aging, school health, tobacco and related diseases, and arts in healing.

All activities must serve individuals in the Owensboro Health service area, which includes the following counties: Breckenridge, Butler, Daviess, Grayson, Hancock, Henderson, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster in Kentucky and Perry and Spencer Counties in Indiana.

In order to apply, an organization's activities or project must:
- Address identified health needs
- Seek measurable improvement in health status, access to care, or use of healthcare resources.

Grants are also awarded to nonprofit organizations for specific programs and activities not directly related to healthcare but addressing root causes of health problems that impact the health of the community. Such grantees may include economic, educational, civic, arts, athletic, and cultural organizations. To qualify, the proposal must identify how the activity addresses root causes of identified health needs.

Additional factors that will warrant priority consideration:
- Multi-partner proposals focused on a priority health need.
- Partnerships with local health councils.
- Collaboration with other organizations in all aspects of program planning.
- Proposals utilizing evidence-based or promising practices.

All programs, projects and activities must include objectives that are SMART: Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound.

Applications must demonstrate a commitment to provide services regardless of race, religion, sex, age, disability or national origin.
