Grant Description
Grants to Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools for programs to address health equity and improve the quality of healthcare for underserved populations. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary application prior to a full application. Funding is intended to advance health equity and improve access to quality healthcare for people experiencing disadvantages due to their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and more.

In 2023, the Foundation launched Together for CHANGE (Changing Health Access for Next Generation Equity), a new signature program that aims to advance health equity and improve access to quality healthcare for people experiencing disadvantages due to their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and more.

Applying nonprofit organizations must meet the following criteria:

  • Organizations must provide culturally responsive services to help improve access to quality healthcare for people experiencing disadvantages due to their race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, income, socioeconomic status, ability, citizenship status, limited English proficiency, literacy, housing status, geographic location or any other barriers to accessing healthcare. This may include but is not limited to:
    • Providing access to care services and coordination of care
    • Mitigating barriers that impact access to care services
    • Improving cultural responsiveness of organizations

Funding priorities for 2023 include:

  • Organizations promoting screenings, early detection, treatment and/or continuity of care for cardiovascular, renal, respiratory or immunologic diseases and/or cancers.
  • Organizations establishing new partnerships and broader coalitions of community-based organizations or expanding existing partnerships with the intent of breaking down institutional silos and facilitating access to quality healthcare through inter-institutional collaboration.
