The Board of Directors of the HealthComp Foundation has announced its grantmaking strategy for 2021 and beyond. The strategy includes both proactive and responsive funding priorities to align with the Foundation’s goals of accelerating a healthy community and advancing equity in Northeast Ohio.
Through its responsive grantmaking, the HealthComp Foundation will support efforts and initiatives that increase social and community support as well as programs anchored in equity that utilize community health workers and other peer connectors.
“The Foundation is interested in initiatives and programs that help give people facing challenges the social support they need in the places where they live, work, learn, and play,” says Board Chair Danielle Price. “We are interested in supporting efforts that demonstrate authentic engagement with communities facing the greatest challenges to good health and power-sharing among partnering groups.”
The application for responsive grant funding will open July 30, 2021, and applications will be due September 1, 2021. For more information about the Foundation’s grantmaking interests, eligibility criteria and application guidelines, visit the Foundation’s website.
In addition to advancing its responsive grantmaking priorities, the Foundation will continue to proactively support efforts to promote the community’s ability to understand and assess priority health needs and to convene resources to address them. Grant applications aligned with this priority are by invitation only.
