HWFPC is seeking to fund projects that: address Pike County’s physical, mental, emotional, and/or social health concerns; implement a collaborative approach to a need; bridge the gap created by health disparities; and provide evidence-based solutions. Proposals may include but are not limited to programs that provide: direct delivery of health and human services, health education and wellness resources, screenings and evaluations, technical assistance, public awareness activities, and capacity building including training and staff development.
The Healthy Community Grant funds projects solely benefitting Pike County, Illinois and is a single-year grant with a funding cap of $7,500 per project. To be eligible applicant organizations must be not for profit or equivalent, and need not be located in Pike County but should be seeking to provide programs or services within Pike County.

Projects that exceed $7500 should apply for the Health Catalyst Grant which funds significant projects in an amount up to $15,000 annually, or up to $45,000 over three years.
