Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare Foundation opens 2nd year of grant cycle

Representatives of the Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare Foundation today announced the opening of the second-year grant cycle on July 1 and anticipate giving away approximately $700,000 in grant funds this year.

A second category of grants have been added this year. In addition to the Impact Grants, which were used last year, the Foundation is offering a Fast Track Small Grant for smaller grant requests this year with $150,000 available.

The Fast-Track Small Grant is a quick turnaround grant of up to $5,000. This grant is intended for small nonprofits that focus on health, wellness, or disease prevention; have an annual operating budget of less than $250,000; and have an emphasis on serving rural communities within the Foundation’s three-state, nine-county service area: Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis and Nez Perce in Idaho; Asotin, Garfield and Whitman in Washington; and Wallowa in Oregon.

Fast-Track Small Grant applications can be submitted at any point during the year and may be awarded on a monthly basis until the funds available run out. The grant application process opens July 1 and the application can be found on the foundation’s website Lewisclarkhealth.org.

The larger impact grants are intended for requests up to $75,000 but the Foundation will consider compelling requests in any amount. Priority will be given to applications that demonstrate a commitment to long-term vision, building partnerships, and projects that address the root causes that affect health, wellness, and help prevent disease.

With the larger impact grants, a two-step process is followed. A letter of interest application, which can be found on the foundation’s website at Lewisclarkhealth.org, must be completed and submitted electronically, through email, or through regular mail. Letters of inquiry will be accepted starting July 1 and must be received by midnight on Aug. 1 to be considered.
