Healthy Communities small grant timeline

The abbreviated application process allows you to focus your efforts on developing a project versus completing a detailed grant application. Grant awards are capped at $25,000. The project duration can be up to one year beginning May 1, 2014, but can be shorter if you propose it within the scope of your project and application. 

Small grant proposals are limited to four pages – cover, project, evaluation and budget pages. 

The proposal packet must arrive at The Wellmark Foundation on or before the deadline of March 3, 2014.  Tracked delivery service or mail delivery is the method of submitting your proposal.

The four-page proposals submitted for the 2014 Healthy Communities Small Grant Program should be one-sided, with a type font no smaller than 11-point.  Send one original (with eligibility documentation) and three copies (four total) to:

2014 MATCH grant timeline

The process for application for a MATCH grant begins with a Letter of Interest (LOI). Applicants with a LOI selected for further development will receive an invitation to submit a full grant proposal and additional application guidance. 

Only those applications invited to the full proposal round will be reviewed.

Each MATCH grant award in 2014 will be a maximum of $75,000 for up to two-year funding periods.  The grant awards must be matched dollar-for-dollar by resources, either cash or in-kind, identified by the applicant.  At least one half of the matching support must be a cash match.  Applications that do not include assurance of the potential for securing adequate matching funds will not be accepted beyond the LOI phase. 

If invited to the invitational application phase and then ultimately selected for funding (in early August 2014), you’ll have until mid-December 2014 to demonstrate you’ve secured the required dollar-for-dollar match so your grant award from The Wellmark Foundation can be released.  The project applicant/fiscal agent is responsible for ensuring the match requirement is met; however, community/project collaborators can also contribute, allowing the cumulative project team to achieve the required match.
