The Willamette Health Council (WHC) is pleased to announce the launch of our 2024-2025 cycle of our Community Impact Grants program.

Last year, Community Impact Grants totaling $2,255,439.93 were awarded amongst 26 different projects that supported the Marion-Polk community. The WHC team is so thankful for the collaboration amongst the 26 organizations that were awarded last year’s donations, and they look forward to another year of funding impactful community initiatives and projects.

The Community Impact Grants program supports projects that directly align with the Willamette Health Council mission as well as projects that serve the Marion-Polk region within the following impact areas:

  • Behavioral Health (including mental health & substance use disorder)
  • Children, Youth, & Families
  • Housing & Homelessness

Projects that effectively align with more than one impact area will be prioritized for funding. Projects will also be prioritized for funding if they are equity-driven, demonstrate cultural and linguistic responsiveness, and support one or more of the Marion-Polk Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) priorities and aims.

For this grant cycle, grants will be awarded in late 2024 for projects taking place in 2025. The WHC is accepting applications from May 13th – July 14th, 2024.
