Grants to New Mexico nonprofit organizations for health care initiatives that address the needs of residents. Funding is intended to support programs and projects, for operating support, or for capacity building. Priority will be given to proposals that demonstrate strong collaborative relationships, have multiple funding sources, a plan for sustainability and address systemic change rather than direct services.

Priority will be given to applications that describe how the organization’s efforts:

  1. Identifies and alleviates gaps in basic needs and barriers to health and economic conditions.
  2. Has a focus on improving the health of underserved populations of New Mexico, including underinsured, ethnic/racial diverse, immigrants, seniors, disabled, veterans, etc.
  3. Work within and/or across geographic areas (neighborhoods, counties, regions) or sectors (government, nonprofit, private/business sector).
  4. Engage beneficiaries as leaders in the proposed work.
  5. Increases capacity for stakeholders to mobilize and leverage resources.

Types of Funding Opportunities:

Con Alma Grant awards are for single-year implementation in support of three ‘types’ of funding opportunities. Choosing which of the three aligns best with the applicant's needs is an important initial step.

  1. Project Support: For efforts focused on health systems strategies that address the needs of New Mexico’s diverse communities.
  2. General Operating/Core Support: For organizations seeking funding of their overall mission and operations.
  3. Technical Assistance/Capacity Building Support: To address the need for capacity building and technical assistance among New Mexico’s nonprofits, and/or nonprofit sector.
