Community Grants for Health & Wellness in the United States
The Hampton Road Community Foundation is inviting applications that focus on improving the health of the region’s citizens.
Efforts supported include:
Programs that support participant access to primary, dental, and/or mental/behavioral health. Behavioral health includes substance/drug abuse treatment.
Sustained programs that encourage healthy behaviors that are known to reduce chronic diseases (e.g. Type II diabetes, heart disease, and lung disease) in populations that typically have a high rate of health disparity. Preference will be given to programs that place an emphasis on improving participants’ health literacy.
Grant proposals should address one or more of the following outcomes:
Individuals with health disparities connect with a medical home and receive care/treatment that leads to an improved health status.
Individuals who access oral care programs complete a dental treatment plan.
Behavioral health needs or conditions of clients are improved.
Participants increase their knowledge of chronic disease conditions and exhibit healthy behaviors that lead to improved health.
If your organization has received a Hampton Roads Community Foundation grant in the past three years, they ask that you not apply for funding for the same type of grant. However, if you received a Community Grant for seed and program projects, you can apply for a Community Grant for Vibrant Places (nonprofit facilities improvement). Similarly, if you received a Vibrant Places grant, you can apply for seed and program support. You can apply annually for a Special Interest Grant, which will not affect your eligibility for a Community Grant.
The Hampton Roads Community Foundation welcomes grant applications from 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity organizations serving residents of South Hampton Roads, including those in:
Eastern Shore of Virginia (Accomack and Northampton counties)
Isle of Wight County
Grants to Eastern Shore nonprofits are awarded in partnership with their affiliated Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Foundation.
