Funding & Grants

The Willamette Health Council (WHC) is pleased to introduce grant and funding opportunities for the Marion and Polk community.  In accordance with our mission, these opportunities focus on improving social determinants of health, health equity, and the quality of healthcare in the Marion & Polk community.

The WHC is using an online platform for grant management called Foundant. Applicants are required to create a new account prior to submitting their Letter of Intent (LOI) or application.

Mini Grants

We encourage applicants to focus on the following priority areas: behavioral health crisis system, housing, and Traditional Health Workers. However, we also encourage applicants to propose creative solutions to the complex arena of healthcare and human services in the Marion-Polk region. The mini grants are noncompetitive awards for up to $24,999. Mini grant applications are available year-round, and awards are made monthly.

Standard Competitive Grants

These grants must focus on one or more of the priority areas: behavioral health crisis system, housing, or traditional health workers (THWs). The Standard Competitive Grants are for projects with a budget between $25,000-$100,000 and are released twice a year.
