Community Giving


Caring Community Grants

Each year, SHD provides grants through our competitive Caring Community Grants program, ranging from $10,000 to 100,000 to local non-profits that offer health services to District residents. For the 2019-20 grant cycle, 54 grants totaling $2.6 million were awarded to community agencies. SHD has set aside $3 million for the 2020-21 grants cycle. For more information on how to apply, please click below on the 2020-21 CC Grant Info. 

SHD Board of Directors approves Priority Funding Areas based on current and projected community health needs and variable funding resources. A Grants Review Committee consisting of local leaders knowledgeable in areas of community health read all applications and make recommendations for funding. Grantees are required to make mid-year and end-of year reports detailing how they used funds to positively impact the health of District residents.

Our Healthy Schools Initiative grants provides funding for programs that address a wide range of important health areas.
