Grants to Tennessee nonprofit organizations, government units, and educational institutions in eligible areas for programs that address the well-being and health care needs of local residents. Priority funding is intended to support programs that extend opportunities to underserved and low-income residents. Eligible programs benefit the residents of Jefferson County.

Funding priorities are intentionally broad so that applicants can exercise creativity and innovation in how they define and address healthcare and well-being issues for Jefferson County residents. This includes new and emerging needs in these unprecedented times of COVID-19. 

Example projects/programs may include those that:
  • Provide affordable and accessible healthcare (i.e. physical and mental health, dental and vision care)
  • Address healthcare workforce shortages that impact access to care
  • Provide assistance for residents without available or reliable transportation to medical appointments and healthcare facilities
  • Improve poor “health literacy” which impacts patients’ ability to understand health information and instructions
  • Provide preventive services including early detection of health issues
  • Address opioid drug addiction
  • Purchase essential medical equipment
  • Provide residents with access to affordable, healthy food, and/or gardening supplies
  • Increase residents’ well-being and comfort by providing warm clothing, air conditioners, and/or heaters
  • Promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles
  • Provide caregiver support
