Responsive Grants Program
The Responsive Grants Program continues in 2013 with grants up to $15,000 to support projects and programs that improve health and quality of life for people throughout our 26-county funding region. We will have two funding rounds this year, with a total of $500,000 available.
Through the Responsive Grants Program, we ask nonprofit organizations and public agencies to tell us how they can improve health and well-being in their communities, and how a grant from Sierra Health Foundation can help support their work. We award at least 30 percent of available funds to support projects serving rural areas of our funding region. The remaining funds are available for projects serving urban areas or urban/rural areas.
Applications for this year's first funding round were due via e-mail by noon on March 4. We will announce grant awards in late May.
