Orlando Health is pleased to once again offer competitive grants through the Orlando Health Community Grant Program. Many team members are personally involved in volunteer efforts in our community, devoting time outside the healthcare system. In recognition of that dedication, the Orlando Health Community Grant Program was created.
As part of our ongoing commitment to Central Florida, these competitive grants will assist in coordinating, enriching, and supporting efforts that help promote health and wellness in the region. Through the program, team members will have the opportunity to pilot ideas or enhance current initiatives that extend beyond our hospital walls. The Orlando Health Community Grant Program is one way Orlando Health is investing back into our community, providing support for the important work being done here in Central Florida.
In fiscal year 2018, the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC), a specialized program offered through our Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families received a grant. With the grant, the CAC hosted the annual Children’s Advocacy Center Child Abuse Prevention Conference that raises awareness about child abuse prevention and provides techniques, strategies and practical application for professionals that work in the child welfare field. With Orlando Health’s support, working professionals such as therapists, lawyers, law enforcement, social workers, medical professional and teachers received this critical education.
The timeline for the grant process has changed in an effort to better align with the fiscal year. Applications and supporting documentation for fiscal year 2019 can be submitted beginning August 6 and must be received by August 31. The application can be found on Community Benefit’s SWIFT page.
