The aim of the Texas Health Community Impact grants are to address health care delivery and outcomes in underserved communities, with particular attention to those in the following counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, Erath, Johnson, Kaufman, and Wise.
Dr. Catherine Oliveros, Vice President of Community Health Improvement at Texas Health Resources spoke to State of Reform on the organization’s ongoing commitment to health equity.
“Grants are given to cross-sector collaborations that innovatively look to change systems and create a seamless experience for those in the community needing services – regardless of their entry point,” Oliveros said.
“We released new funding proposals in 2020 that allocated an additional $5 million to community efforts. The 2023-2024 release for funding proposal is now live and will be open through Sept. 15th, 2022. For our third grant cycle, we are investing $8 million thanks to a $1.5 million gift from Communities Foundation of Texas’s W. W. Caruth, Jr. Fund and a match of an additional $1.5 million from Texas Health. In total, Texas Health will have invested $18.2 million by 2023.”
The Request for Proposals (RFP) is available here. Organizations in the following counties are encouraged to apply: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise. A total of $6.5 million is available for distribution.
In addition to those funds, Texas Health is investing $1.5 million toward capacity development and collaboration building in Erath, Johnson, and Kaufman counties. For organizations interested in this opportunity, please email the Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) at [email protected] and clearly reference “THCI.”
Texas Health is committed to improving the health of the people in the communities we are privileged to serve with this $8 million investment. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Sept. 16, 2022. To find out more, contact [email protected].
