Safety Net

Health Forward’s safety net funding supports the implementation of service delivery models for physical and oral health that hold the promise of delivering better health, better health care, and contained costs through improved quality.

In January 2022, we announced the results of our year-long purpose alignment process. We have shared our strategies and outcomes, but we still need space and time to build them out. While we still believe safety net service is integral to our vision of healthy people in healthy communities, our grantmaking will evolve, our partnerships will diversify, and our advocacy footprint will broaden.

The remainder of this year will serve as a transitional period between our past and future grantmaking. There will be limited funding opportunities in 2022.

2022 Safety Net Grants

Health Forward will not release open requests for proposals for Safety Net Grants in 2022. Safety Net grants awarded in January 2022 will carry through June 30, 2023 to provide sustaining support during this transition period.

Safety Net Grants approved in December 2021 will end on June 30, 2023.

More information about our 2022 grantmaking is available on our deadlines page.
