The Foundation may invite programs or agencies with a record of strong outcomes to apply for funding. Agencies invited to apply for grants will receive applications by email. Grants by invitation fall into three categories.

WHF Response for Responsive Grants – Invitation to Submit by Invitation Proposals

Grant Cycle 1 – Friday, February 12
Grant Cycle 2 – Friday, August 6

Basic Operating Support

Grants provide support for agencies effectively addressing community health issues. In addition to meeting the Foundation’s eligibility requirements, agencies must have had at least three years of WHF funding and demonstrated ability to meet performance benchmarks, improve efficiencies, continually deliver quality services, and address community needs. Government agencies, hospitals, and higher education institutions are not eligible for these grants. An agency may only receive one grant in this category per year.

Basic Operating Support status is reviewed annually.

Basic Program Support

Grants provide support for individual programs effectively addressing specific community health issues. In addition to meeting the Foundation’s eligibility requirements, programs must have had demonstrated ability to meet performance benchmarks, improve efficiencies, continually deliver quality services, and address community needs. An agency may receive two grants in this category per year.

Basic Program Support status is reviewed annually.

Foundation-Directed

Grants provide funding for programs targeting community health issues identified by the Foundation and collaborating agencies. Agencies must meet Foundation’s eligibility requirements. Other requirements are determined by the nature of the program.

Foundation-Directed status is reviewed annually. These grants are process, data, and outcome driven. They are also characterized by active involvement by Foundation staff.

2021 Grant Cycle Due Dates

Applications and supporting documents must be submitted by noon (12:00 p.m.) on the dates indicated. There are no exceptions to deadlines. Please complete your application early to avoid any last minute problems. Late applications will not be considered.
