The Quality Health Foundation in Easton, Maryland, is the mission arm of Quality Health Strategies, a national not-for-profit organization committed to Creating Solutions to Transform Health. Since 2006, the foundation has awarded approximately $4 million to more than sixty different organizations in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
In support of its mission, the foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for healthcare projects focused on un- and underinsured patients. Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to support a range of programs, including service, demonstration, education, and clinical programs designed to produce high-impact health outcomes results. Funding will be prioritized based on a project's potential impact on healthcare improvements and access for individuals and communities, particularly un- and underserved populations.
In addition, to honor the memory of long-time board member and supporter Dr. Sheldon Goldgeier, the foundation will award one of the grants to a program specifically related to pulmonary issues, including but not limited to smoking cessation, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. High priority will be given to applications targeting underserved populations.
Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Maryland or the District of Columbia focused on improving the health of individuals through measurable outcome goals at the community level.
