2024 Cycle 2 will open May 24, 2024.

Grants up to $10,000

Grants up to $10,000 have a simpler application form and reporting requirements to align with the amount requested (versus Grants of $10,001 to $25,000 or Grants over $25,000). Grant 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.
