Grant Guidelines and Practices

We are sensitive to the demands placed on our partners and are open to suggestions about how we can best support shared learning and relationship building among people and organizations engaged in common causes. We want to support our partners in ways that are meaningful, responsive, and appropriate, without placing undue burdens on busy people.

With that in mind…

With that in mind…

  • When possible, we fund general operating support grants.
  • We are incorporating multi-year funding opportunities in our three portfolios: Access to Health Care, Equity + Health, and Health Equity, Arts, & the Built Environment.
  • We have significantly increased our investments to support policy and advocacy work as well as community engagement, leadership development, and capacity building for neighborhood and resident-led efforts.
  • We are continuing to offer racial equity training to grantee partners and more members of our community.
  • We are always looking for ways to streamline end-of-year reporting requirements for our partners.

We have published grant guidelines for organizations seeking funding from RMHF.
