Healthcare Foundation of La Porte (HFL) announces the opening of its grant portal for 2022 Cycle 1 grants. To advance its mission and vision, HFL invites grant proposals for health and wellness projects and programs starting January 7, 2022 through February 25, 2022. HFL’s mission is to empower La Porte County residents to live healthy and well to achieve the vision of La Porte County becoming one of the 10 healthiest communities in Indiana by 2030.
HFL welcomes grant proposals that impact HFL’s strategic priorities of Healthy Children, Healthy Living, and Healthy Minds. Grant proposals must demonstrate a commitment to measurable results that contribute to positive change in one or more of the community-wide indicators HFL uses to monitor and track progress for each strategic priority.
Through its Healthy La Porte grants, HFL also welcomes grant proposals to meet community health and wellness needs outside of HFL’s strategic priorities. Healthy La Porte grant proposals must demonstrate a connection to HFL’s mission and vision and a commitment to measurable results.
With this new year, HFL challenges community organizations and partners to bring fresh ideas and proposals to address our toughest health and wellness challenges in La Porte County. HFL President and CEO, Maria Fruth, commented, “To achieve our vision of becoming one of the 10 healthiest communities in Indiana by 2030, it will take all of us. It will take bold steps, innovative ideas, and dedicated partners implementing evidence-based practices.” Fruth urges community partners to: review the grantmaking section of HFL’s website to understand the foundation’s strategic priorities and the community-wide indicators; explore promising practices on HFL’s Ten2030 website that could be adapted to our community; and collaborate with community partners to draw on organizational strengths.
HFL is accepting grant proposals for 2022 Cycle 1 grants through February 25, 2022. Organizations interested in applying for a grant over $25,000 are required to submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) as a first step by January 21, 2022. All grant applications and letters of inquiry must be submitted online through HFL’s grant portal to be considered for funding. Organizations can find a link to the grant portal on HFL’s website.
