Open Request for Proposals (RFP) Proposals by Invitation Only Future Funding Opportunities to be Determined

Who We Fund To request a grant, your organization must be a 501(c) (3) charitable organization or a public/governmental agency located in and providing services in our geographic area. A public agency is an organization established and primarily funded by a unit of government. Examples could include a public school, public health department or state governmental agency. If your organization received a Behavioral Health or Early Childhood Health grant last year or if you have a current strategic grant, you are not eligible to apply for any of these programs this year. Rural Health grant recipients are eligible to submit an application for funding in consecutive years. What We Fund The Medica Foundation considers single-year grant requests. Nonprofit organizations are eligible to receive one grant within a calendar year. Depending on the needs of the community, these funding areas may be modified from year to year.
