Health and Wellness Grant

  

The Miller County Health Center is providing an opportunity to submit grant applications for funding to improve the Health and Wellness in our community. These grants are eligible for not for profit 501(c)3 or tax exempt organizations, such as: schools, local governments, civic groups, community based organizations, emergency responders, churches, or others serving Miller County residents. If your organization is not 501(c)3 or tax exempt, you may partner with an organization that is to serve as a fiscal agent.

The Health Center’s Board of Trustees will approve grant applications for funding from $1,000 to $20,000 for Health and Wellness activities that will make a significant difference in our community. Due to the source of the funding, these grant funds must be used within Miller County for the benefit of Miller County residents and our visitors (i.e. playground equipment must be accessible to all). It is the desire of the Health Center to increase county resident’s involvement in improving the health and quality of life in Miller County.

Possible Activities:
  • Building or updating health promoting infrastructure (walking trails, parks, farmers markets, etc.)
  • Purchasing health equipment for use and distribution in the community (AEDs, CO2 detectors, floatation devices, etc.)
  • Providing or attending health-related training (CPR, Mental Health First Aid, Diabetes Management classes, etc.)
  • Other items or events that promote health (health textbooks, educational materials, access to care, food/buddy packs, etc.)

The grant applications must be received by March 30, 2018.  Awarded grant recipients will be notified by May 11, 2018.  The grant period is June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019.

All awarded recipients will be required to submit a quarterly report. Reporting and invoicing templates will be sent with the notification of awarded funds.
