Impact and Capacity Grants

Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) offers the Impact and Capacity Grants (ICG) Initiative Request for Proposals (RFP) funding mechanism to support mission-aligned organizations actively working within one or more of KHF’s four impact areas to reduce health disparities and promote health equity through capacity building or impact-specific grant support. Organizations can apply for one of two categories: impact grants or organizational capacity-building grants. All prospective applicants should carefully review KHF’s mission and strategic focus, as well as the funding criteria, before applying. To learn more, read on or view the Frequently Asked Questions.

When to apply: Proposals accepted between May 1, 2019, and August 30, 2019, or until all funds have been expended. (An organization may apply for only one of the two proposal categories)

Grant Amount: Up to $25,000

Timeline: Applicants are notified within 45 days of submitting their application.
