Applicant Defined Grants

Applicant defined grants are based upon an applicant’s determination of need and should be consistent with Health Forward’s mission, target population, and service area.

Applications are reviewed on a regular basis throughout the year, with funding decisions made usually within 4-8 weeks after receipt of proposal.

Proposals are accepted for:

  • Capacity building – Enhance or improve the organization through developing skills, ability, and resources (i.e. technology upgrades, strategic planning).
  • Core operating support – Cover day-to-day activities or ongoing expenses (i.e. salaries, utilities, office supplies, technology).
  • Program support – Support a specific, connected set of ongoing, long-term activities or services with explicit objectives/outcomes, and predetermined costs.
