Community Health Impact Program Now Accepting Proposals

The Health Fund is pleased to share our 2018 Community Health Impact Program Request for Proposals.

Our Community Health Impact Program allows for meaningful investment in promising endeavors that align with our mission of improving the health and wellness of Michigan’s residents with particular emphasis on children and seniors. The intention of these grants is to support projects that will have an impact on community health and wellness and are smaller in scale and complexity than projects that address our proactive initiatives. We're seeking proposals that address important community needs where one-time grants could produce long-term impact while providing solutions to pressing health issues within Michigan.

We encourage applicants to submit concept papers
by Tuesday, November 28 for early feedback!

Proposals are due Thursday, December 21 at 5:00 p.m.








We're also pleased to share our latest grant awards! You can learn more about these awards on our blog.
