Funding Opportunities for HEAL Cities

The 2016 Small Grants are now closed. 2017 Small Grants will be announced summer of 2017.

The HEAL Cities Small Grants competition is an annual grant opportunity for HEAL cities to seek funding to implement HEAL policies. An explicit and significant goal of the HEAL Cities Campaign is to advance equity;  successful applications are required to direct resources to neighborhoods experiencing the greatest disparities and are encouraged to do so in partnership with community organizations serving residents that have the most need for HEAL programs. Grant requests can range from $5,000 to $15,000.
