How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the Central Oregon Health Council’s funding opportunities. Please read all eligibility requirements before proceeding to the pre-grant application checklist and online application. Our open funding cycle for 2020-2024 is focused specifically on six topic areas (listed below under Eligibility) with specific metrics under each; any proposal that does not specifically address one of these areas’ metrics will not be considered.

How We Fund


Mini Grants (requests of $5,000 and under) are available all the time, and you can find more information about applying for one on our Mini Grant page here.

Standard Grants (over $5,000) are available intermittently. Workgroups will open and close funding cycles as needed. Click here to see which funding cycles are currently available.

Community Health Projects are available once per year, and are vetted by our Community Advisory Council. At this time we are accepting Letters of Interest for this opportunity. Read more about the community Health Projects opportunity here. 

All funding decisions are overseen by priority area workgroups containing both community members and subject-matter experts.

Here is a quick overview of the application process:

  • Visit the COHC website to review eligibility criteria
