The next HFL grant cycle will open January 2024.
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. You can learn more about HFL's strategic priorities and Healthy La Porte grants here. Applications for grants up to $25,000 are accepted twice per year during HFL’s two grant cycles. Please see the Timeline section on this page to learn more about HFL’s two grant cycles.

Grant requests over $25,000 must address one of HFL’s strategic priorities of Healthy Children, Healthy Living, and Healthy Minds. Please note that HFL does not consider requests for Healthy
La Porte grants over $25,000. Applications for over $25,000 are accepted twice per year during HFL’s two grant cycles. Please see the Timeline section on this page to learn more about HFL’s two grant cycles.
Applications to apply for a grant over $25,000 require a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) as a first step. Only applicants who receive a favorable response to their LOI will be invited to submit a full proposal.
