Grants of up to $50,000 to Maryland and Washington, DC nonprofits, healthcare providers, educational institutions, and faith-based and community service organizations to improve healthcare quality and access. One grant will be awarded to a program that addresses pulmonary issues.

Qlarant Foundation awards grants to eligible nonprofit organizations that work to improve healthcare for individuals and communities through measurable outcome improvement projects. These projects include service, demonstration, education and clinical programs producing high-impact results on health outcomes. Funding is prioritized based on a project’s potential impact on healthcare improvements and access for individuals and communities, particularly the uninsured and under-served population.

The Foundation's focus is on a program that demonstrates improved health care quality with clear goals and measurable outcomes. Priority areas include programs that:

- Improve access to health care services to the unserved and under-served
- Improve understanding of health issues
- Demonstrate improvement through measurable outcomes of stated goals

Types of programs the Qlarant Foundation might fund include those that:

- Improve healthy lifestyles and quality of life
- Increase access to culturally and linguistically appropriate care
- Implement consumer-centered care and decision making
- Improve dissemination of education and health-related information
- Improve patient safety

Dr. Sheldon Goldgeier Award
To honor the memory of long-time board members and supporters, Dr. Sheldon Goldgeier and Mrs. Myra Goldgeier, the Foundation wishes to set aside one grant for pulmonary issues. Therefore, this RFP is also specifically soliciting proposals for a program particular to pulmonary and/or lung disease, i.e., but not limited to smoking cessation, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. A high priority will be given to applications that reach these underserved populations.
