The Health Trust makes grants for projects that advance select strategies under our three initiatives: Healthy Living, Healthy Eating and Healthy Aging. The majority of Health Partnership Grants are typically awarded in the range of $25,000 to $100,000 over 12 months.
Priority will be given to projects that meet the following grant criteria:
- Bolsters health promotion and primary prevention efforts
- Includes a system, policy, practice, or environmental change that can have an impact beyond the grant period
- Includes a feasible sustainability plan
- Follows promising and best practices
Health Partnership grants are made out of a restricted fund for medically-related purposes in accordance with The Health Trust’s organizational charter and by-laws. The Health Trust defines medically-related as “the maintenance of health and the prevention, alleviation, or cure of disease.” Health Partnership grants are funded through a hospital sponsor designated by The Health Trust.
