Foundation Defined Grants

Foundation defined grants are awarded to address barriers to health in our three focus areas of Healthy Communities, Mental Health, and Safety Net.

Health Forward will issue a request for proposals for each funding area. Requests are released throughout the year. To receive alerts that a request for proposals has been released, please sign up for our enewsletter.

Organizations are allowed to submit only one proposal per foundation defined grant as the lead organization. Hospitals, universities, colleges, city departments, and affiliated foundations and sponsored research organizations may submit two applications.

We welcome you to explore the funding areas below to see which category best fits your program. Before submitting an application, please take a few moments to review our eligibility requirements.
