Grants up to $25,000

Requests are accepted for proposals that address HFL’s strategic priorities of Healthy Children, Healthy Living, and Healthy Minds, as well as for Healthy La Porte grants. Healthy La Porte grants meet community health and wellness needs that fall outside of HFL’s strategic priorities and demonstrate a connection to HFL’s mission and vision.

  • HFL will review all submitted LOI's within 5 business days. 

  • Applicants may receive a request for further information.
