In the grant application phase, we asked applicants to articulate the specific health needs of the communities they serve as well as the specific impact they seek to achieve. Grant recipients demonstrated alignment with at least one of our strategic grantmaking priority areas below and a commitment to influence determinants of health within our funding area.
Grant applications were reviewed with our grantmaking principles in mind and a vision of how our investments could be leveraged to help create long-term partnerships, community impact and equitable change. Our grant recipients demonstrate collaboration with community stakeholders, address gaps in health services or other critical programming and conduct health-focused research and/or policy and advocacy for our service area, especially for our Legacy and Equity residents (which are 71% of the total HCF service area).
