The Healthcare Georgia Foundation has announced the availability of funding for its 2019 Direct Services Grant Program.
In alignment with HGF’s strategic plan, the program supports best practices in and/or promising approaches that address the high burden, cost, and underlying risk factors of chronic conditions such as asthma, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes., with a focus on vulnerable populations, including low-income, minority, rural and/or underserved individuals and communities.
The foundation is especially interested in evidence-based programs/interventions that will make a lasting impact on the health of the defined target population. Projects that target high-disparity populations and include technically sound methods for measuring change over time are encouraged.
The foundation anticipates awarding up to a dozen one-year grants of up to $50,000. Priority consideration will be given to organizations with matching cash funds allocated toward the sustainability of the project and its outcomes.
Eligible applicants include organizations defined as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code, quasi-governmental agencies, and public health agencies. Organizations must be located in Georgia and the program must target residents of the state.
