Applications are now open for the inaugural grantmaking program of the Greater Rochester Community Health Foundation.
The Greater Rochester Community Health Foundation’s mission is to improve the health and well-being and reduce the burden of illness of people in Strafford County and surrounding communities.
The focus of this grant program is access to care, which was identified by initial research of community needs assessments from the major healthcare providers in the region. This grantmaking program is open to nonprofit organizations that serve Strafford County residents and work on access to care challenges. Access to care may include: mental health, substance use disorder, food security, housing, senior services, transportation and logistics, culturally appropriate care, awareness of services, care coordination and patient motivation.
One-year grants of up to $10,000 for general operating support will be made through this program. Deadline for applications is Friday, December 9, 2022.
As a “supporting organization” of the Charitable Foundation, the Health Foundation draws on the Charitable Foundation’s community knowledge and financial and investment expertise to meet its mission.
