Access to Health Care

Previous Grantees

The Access to Health Care Community Grant program was designed to support organizations that provide direct health care services, including mental health, dental, and hospice or palliative care services, to those who would not otherwise have access to such services due to economic, social, or geographic reasons.

Application Process

Grant applications for the 2024 grant cycle are closed. Please check back for next year's opportunity.



Grants are awarded to charitable organizations providing basic and preventive health care to individuals who would not otherwise have access to such services.

If my organization received an Access to Health Care grant last year, am I eligible to apply this year?

You may reapply this year if the following conditions have been met:

  • The funds have been fully expended
  • All follow-up grant reports have been submitted
  • The program successfully met its goals
My organization has a current grant through one of the other Community Grant opportunities (Opportunities for Children or Services for Older Adults.) Am I eligible to apply for the Opportunities for Children grant?

Yes, but only if it is for a different program. We will not consider funding the same program with two different community grants.

Can an organization submit a Letter of Interest or grant application for more than one project during a single grant cycle?

Yes, applicants will submit letters of intent online. (Please refer to the guidelines above). If your proposed program and organization appear to meet the guidelines, you will receive an email with a link and access code to the online application.

Are applications submitted online?

We have moved to a new grant management program. Both the Letter of Interest and Application will be submitted through our online grant portal.

Check out the top of this page for more info!

Will the organizations that apply receive notification if they are not approved?

Yes, all organizations that submit an application will be notified of funding decisions by the Notification of Funding Decision by the end of February 2024.
