The Superior Health Foundation is now accepting large grant applications for its Indigent Care Fund.
SHF will award funding at its spring grant celebration in mid April. Grants requests cannot exceed $5,000.
Applications will be accepted from February 1 through March 1, 2019.
The Superior Health Foundation’s Grants Committee will review the applications and will make its recommendations to the SHF Board of Directors at its March board meeting.
Last spring, SHF was the recipient of $1.2 million from the former Medical Care Access Coalition (MCAC). Those monies have been invested in the market, with investment earnings used to provide funding to tax-exempt and government organizations that provide or arrange for medical or healthcare services to residents of the Upper Peninsula.
“We’re excited to make this funding available to those organizations across the Upper Peninsula whose focus is on health and offer services to the indigent,” said Jim LaJoie, executive director of the Superior Health Foundation. “We funded two projects in the fall to “kick-start” this fund, and since then, there has been a great deal of interest across the region in these grant dollars becoming available.”
