As part of Orlando Health’s ongoing commitment to be engaged and involved in communities throughout Central Florida – fulfilling our mission to improve the health and quality of life of the individuals and communities we serve – we are happy to offer competitive grants through the Orlando Health Community Grant Program to assist in coordinating, enriching and supporting efforts that help promote health and wellness in our communities.
These grants will serve to provide resources needed to fill a specific health- or wellness-related need impacting the families in our communities. The Orlando Health Community Grant Program will focus mostly on funding initiatives that align with the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (2016 CHNA), specifically initiatives that enhance access to care.
The Orlando Health Community Grant Program is one way Orlando Health invests back into our community, providing support for the important work being done in Central Florida. Please review the following information carefully before submitting an application.
