  • What are the grant cycles for 2024?
    In 2024, HFL will offer two grant cycles. Cycle 1 opens January 12, 2024, and closes March 1, 2024. Cycle 2 opens May 24, 2024, and closes July 12, 2022. Applicants will be notified of decisions in June 2024 for Cycle 1 and in October 2024 for Cycle 2. The types of grants and eligibility requirements for both cycles are identical.
  • May I apply for a grant during either cycle?
    Yes. HFL gives applicants the flexibility to select the grant cycle that works best for their organization and project/program. If you have questions regarding the best grant cycle for your program/project, contact HFL.
  • Is there a limit to how many grant applications we can submit per cycle? Per Year?
    HFL suggests no more than two grant requests per year per organization. These requests can be submitted during the same grant cycle or one per cycle.
  • May I apply for a program that has received HFL grant funding in the past?
    Yes, unless your project/program just received funding in the last grant cycle. In that case, you should wait to apply again until the next grant cycle. For example, if your project or program received funding in Grant Cycle 2 of 2023, you should wait until Grant Cycle 2 of 2024 to apply.
  • How does Health Foundation of La Porte accept proposals?
    HFL only accepts applications through our grant portal. Applications sent by any other means will not be considered.
  • What is the process for grants that are up to $10,000?
    To request a grant of $10,000 or less, login to the grant portal and click on “Grants up to $10,000” to begin your application. Please note that the application and reporting for grants up to $10,000 is simpler than those for grant requests over $10,000, for which there are two distinct processes (Grants of $10,001 to $25,000 and Grants over $25,000).
  • What is the process for grants that are $10,001 to $25,000?
    To request a grant that is between $10,001 and $25,000, login to the grant portal and click on "Grants of $10,001 to $25,000" to begin your application.
  • What is the process for grants that are over $25,000?
    For requests over $25,000, applicants must login to the grant portal and click on “Grants over $25,000.” Applications to apply for a grant over $25,000 require a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) as a first step. A LOI is an abbreviated description of your proposed project or program. It is not a vague exploration of an idea. It is assumed that you have already thought through your proposed project/program (including a budget). Invitations to proceed to the full application will be sent out to applicants. If invited to proceed, full applications must be submitted before the close of the application cycle. HFL will review all submitted LOIs within 10 business days. Applicants may receive a request for further information. Please note: Requests for grants over $25,000 must address one of HFL’s strategic priorities of Healthy Children, Healthy Living, or Healthy Minds.
