The Willamette Health Council is pleased to offer Community Impact Grants for funding requests up to $100,000. This grant program supports projects within the Marion-Polk region that address one or more of the following priority areas:

  • Children, Youth & Families
  • Healthcare Workforce Development
  • Housing & Homelessness


Applications are accepted through a competitive process annually, which includes:

  • A Letter of Intent (LOI).
  • LOIs are reviewed by our Community Impact Committee (CIC). The CIC determines which projects are invited to submit a full application.
  • Invited projects submit a full application. The CIC reviews, scores and makes a final funding decision.


We anticipate the request for LOIs to launch in summer 2023. Continue to check our website for updates.
