The Jefferson County Public Health Advised Fund of the Community Foundation is announcing a small amount of competitive grant funding for projects that:
- Address one or more public health goals from “Our Community Roadmap to Health“, Jefferson County’s public health assessment;
- Involve an existing collaboration between two or more entities (one entity must be the lead applicant); and
- Demonstrate potential to have a broad public health impact in Jefferson County.
According to Gus Heard-Hughes, Community Foundation Director of Initiatives and main contact for interested applicants, the maximum amount possible for a single grant through this funding cycle will be $25,000. Generally, requests should constitute no more than 25% of the total project budget and should demonstrate diversified sources of support (including committed, pending or planned sources, and both cash and in-kind sources). Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)3 designation, churches that meet the requirements of IRS section 501(c)e and some governmental entities.
Seed funding opportunities for emerging organizations or collaborations will also be considered.
