Standard Grants

The Central Oregon Health Council is responsible for investing $12 million in the communities in our region between January 2020 and December 2024. These investments must directly impact our Regional Health Improvement Plan. Our priority areas each have a workgroup of community members who decide together how to invest the funds.

When there are specific unmet needs in our communities, the workgroups create grant opportunities, also known as Requests for Proposal (RFPs). These Requests for Proposal must impact one measure in the Regional Health Improvement Plan (for example, increasing high school graduation rates or decreasing food insecurity).

Please see the current open RFPs below for more details.

Community Health Projects

Community Health Projects grants are available once per year and are vetted by our Community Advisory Council (CAC) through a separate process from our standard grants.

The Central Oregon Health Council’s Community Advisory Council (CAC) is accepting pre-applications for projects addressing Social Determinants of Health and Equity (SDOH-E) through the Community Health Projects grant program. The CAC is investing in community-level interventions focused on improving community health and wellbeing and reducing health disparities.  Special consideration will be given to projects partnering with impacted community members.  Grants awarded will range from $5,000 to $80,000.

This grant is a two-step process: (1) Interested parties are invited to complete the pre-application for preliminary review. (2) Selected applicants will be invited to fill out the full application for final funding consideration.
