The Collaborate Feature on HFL’s Grant Portal 

The Collaborate feature can help when: 

  • More than one person from an organization needs to work on a request. 

  • An applicant or grantee needs someone else to upload a document, fill out certain questions, or sign off on their request (e.g., an executive director, co-worker, fiscal sponsor, etc.). 

  • An applicant or grantee needs an efficient way for someone else to view, edit, and/or submit their application or follow-up form (e.g., a grant agreement, final report).

Frequently Asked Questions

Grant Cycle Questions

What are the grant cycles for 2021?


In 2021, HFL will offer two grant cycles. Cycle 1 is closed. Cycle 2 opens May 28 and closes July 16, 2021. Applicants will be notified of decisions in June 2021 for Cycle 1 and in October 2021 for Cycle 2. The types of grants and eligibility requirements for both cycles are identical.




How does Healthcare Foundation of La Porte accept proposals?


HFL only accepts applications through our grant portal. Applications sent by any other means will not be considered.




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.




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 1 of 2021, you should wait until Grant Cycle 1 of 2022 to apply.




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.




What is the process for Healthy La Porte grants?


To request a Healthy La Porte grant, login to the grant portal and click on “Grants up to $25,000” to begin your application. Proposed projects and programs attend health and wellness needs that fall outside of HFL’s strategic priorities of Healthy Children, Healthy Living, and Healthy Minds. Please note: HFL does not provide Healthy La Porte grants over $25,000.




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 LOI’s within 3-5 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. HFL does not provide Healthy La Porte grants over $25,000.




What is the process for grants that are up to $25,000?


To request a grant of $25,000 or less to address a strategic priority, login to the grant portal and click on “Grants up to $25,000” to begin your application.
