Healthy Communities grant applications due Sept. 30

To assist nonprofit organizations in administering health-related programming and enhancing their own internal capacity to work effectively, the Pallottine Foundation of Huntington is pleased to announce its Healthy Communities Initiative is now accepting applications. This initiative is open to nonprofits providing health-related services in the Foundation’s 20-county, tri-state region. These counties are:

  • Ohio (Gallia, Lawrence, and Scioto) 
  • West Virginia (Boone, Cabell, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, western Putnam, and Wayne)

The Healthy Communities Initiative supports projects that address any of the two

following focus areas:  

  • Health and wellness projects directed at an organization’s clients or communities served
  • Capacity building projects that enhance the effectiveness of an organization’s internal operations

For this application cycle, our Foundation has implemented a “Short Form” and 

“Long Form” application process. Organizations with requests ranging from

$3,500 – $15,000 must submit the Healthy Communities Initiative Short Form Application. The Short Form application is designed for simpler projects with lower requested levels of funding.

The Long Form application is designed for more complex projects with higher requested levels of funding. The level of detail required for completion of the Short and Long Form applications is commensurate with the complexity and amount of the funding request.
