Pallottine Foundation of Huntington announces Healthy Communities Initiative – US
The Pallottine Foundation of Huntington has announced the applications for its Healthy Communities Initiative to support regular programming needs of nonprofit organizations for the continuation or enhancement of existing projects, the development of new project offerings, and projects that improve the organization’s internal capacity to work effectively.
To assist these nonprofits in administering health-related programming and improving their own internal capacity to work effectively, the Foundation has established the Healthy Communities Initiative funding opportunity. The Healthy Communities Initiative has a whole-person focus and provides support to organizations’ operating programs that address a person’s behavioral, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual health with goals of disease and injury prevention, health improvement, and enhanced quality of life.
The Healthy Communities Initiative is open to the following categories of projects:
Health and wellness projects directed at an organization’s clients or communities served
Capacity building projects that enhance the effectiveness of an organization’s internal operations.
Any eligible nonprofit organization may submit a funding request for projects that range from $3,500 – $50,000. Organizations must expend the funds within one year and provide interim and final reporting on their grant-funded activities.
Organizations with requests ranging from $3,500 – $15,000 must submit the Healthy Communities Initiative Short Form Application. The Short Form application is designed for simpler projects with lower requested levels of funding. The level of detail required for completion of the Short Form applications is commensurate with the complexity and amount of the funding request.
Organizations with requests ranging from $15,001 – $50,000 must submit the Healthy Communities Initiative Long Form Application. The Long Form application is designed for more complex projects with higher requested levels of funding. The level of detail required for completion of the Long Form applications is commensurate with the complexity and amount of the funding request.
This funding opportunity is only available to organizations that provide services in the Foundation’s twenty-county Tri-State region in Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia. An eligible organization does not have to be physically located in one of these counties, but it must submit a proposal requesting funding for a project in one or more of the Foundation’s counties. Organizations with service areas exceeding the Foundation’s region should contact a Foundation Program Officer to ensure the proposed project meets the geographic criteria before applying for funding.
The 20 counties in the Foundation’s Tri-State region are:
Kentucky (Boyd, Carter, Floyd, Greenup, Johnson, Lawrence, Martin, and Pike)
Ohio (Gallia, Lawrence, and Scioto)
West Virginia (Boone, Cabell, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, western Putnam, and Wayne)
An eligible organization must have recognized federal tax status under Section 501(c)(3). The organization must principally administer programs providing health-related services. Eligible organizations must operate programs that are compatible with the Mission, Vision, Values, and Focus Areas of the Foundation.
Organizations that have an open grant with the Foundation are eligible to apply for this Initiative. Additionally, organizations that previously applied for funding from the Foundation, but were not successful, may apply again. These organizations are encouraged to discuss any proposed project with a Foundation Program Officer before applying again.
