HHS Region 6:
The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas is accepting applications from programs that positively affect the health of Arkansans. Priority will be given to projects affecting healthcare delivery, healthcare policy, and healthcare economics. Projects must demonstrate strong community, regional, or statewide support (e.g., co-funding by other community, regional, or statewide organizations or groups). Projects also should demonstrate operational and financial viability that will survive and continue after funding from the foundation ends.
Grant amounts will range between $5,000 and $150,000. In addition to its regular grants program, the foundation offers a simpler application for $1,000 mini-grants in support of health-improvement projects in the state.
To be eligible, applicants must be an Arkansas-based organization or governmental agency. Churches and faith-based organizations also are eligible to apply, so long their health improvement program reaches beyond the members of their own congregation.
Applications for the upcoming cycle are due July 15, 2021.
