Caring Community Grants

Caring Community Grants

Each year, SHD provides grants through our competitive Caring Community Grants program, ranging from $10,000 to 150,000 to local non-profits that offer health services to District residents. On January 6, 2021, SHD Board approved of a recommendation to allocate $750,000 of Covid-19 emergency funds into the 2021-22 Caring Community grants, raising the total funds to $3.75 million in the 2021-22 grants cycle. 

SHD Board of Directors approves Priority Funding Areas based on current and projected community health needs and variable funding resources (click below on CC Grant Info for list of areas). A Grants Review Committee consisting of local leaders knowledgeable in areas of community health read all applications and make recommendations for funding. Grantees are required to make mid-year and end-of year reports detailing how they used funds to positively impact the health of District residents.
