The Healthy Communities Initiative provides support to health-focused nonprofit organizations for the continuation or enhancement of existing projects, as well as the development of new project offerings.
In 2020, the Pallottine Foundation of Huntington has budgeted $1,000,000 for the Healthy Communities Initiative. Individual grant awards will range from $5,000 to $50,000. The 2020 application guidance will be posted in early April 2020. The expected funding distribution date will be June 2020, and the grant period will be for one year.
