Grants to New Mexico nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for health care initiatives that address the needs of populations. Preference will be given to proposals that focus on underserved residents. Funding is intended to support a wide range of projects, programs, organizations, and initiatives that promote health and wellness in Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, and northern Santa Fe Counties.

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 Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, and northern Santa Fe counties, including underinsured, ethnic/racial diverse, immigrants, seniors, disabled, veterans, etc.

Grant types:

Project Support requests focus support efforts focused on health systems strategies that address the needs of the diverse communities within Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, and northern Santa Fe counties.

An application for Project Support generally:

  • Focus on a particular set of goals,
  • Engage a focused group of beneficiaries,
  • Employ specific systems-level activities,
  • Identify outcomes that tend to be accomplished within a finite time period.

General Operating requests focus support an organization’s overall mission and operations, without a particular project focus. Organizations that provide direct service to individuals are generally not eligible to apply for general operating grants.

To be considered for General Operating, it is important for the applicant organization to show how:

  • Its mission, operations, and goals are aligned with, and advance, the Foundation’s strategic focus (systems change and equity) for improving community health.
  • Its stated goals and outcomes involve systems-level strategies and high-impact such as:
    • Advancing and promoting equity.
    • Shifting policy, administrative rules, procedures, or practices within communities, organizations, institutions, or public agencies.
    • Multi-level engagement across movements and/or sectors.
    • Intersectional solutions.
