Working for a Healthier Community

Foundation for Community Health is now accepting proposals for up to $15,000 through our COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant Program. We ask that requests during this initial phase of funding, focus on the following:

  • strengthening community safety nets
  • helping our most vulnerable community members with preparedness
  • supporting organizations’ capacity for risk communications and/or telework solutions

Eligible organizations are 501(c)3 organizations, that serve residents in the greater Harlem Valley of New York and the northern Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and have an operating budget at or under 1 million dollars annually. Requested funds can be used for general operating support.

The application is simple: there are three short answer narrative questions, multiple choice questions, and uploads for standard supporting documents (e.g. 990, organizational budget). No extensive budget information is requested, applicants will be asked to simply detail the amount they request, how long they will use the requested funds for, and what that funding will be allocated towards.

Please visit our online grantee portal to apply. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed weekly.
