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 team of community members who decide as a workgroup how to invest the funds.

When there is a specific unmet need in our communities, Workgroups for each priority area create grant opportunities, also known as Requests For Proposals (RFPs).  These Request for Proposals must impact one measure in the Regional Health Improvement plan (examples: increasing high school graduation rates, decreasing food insecurity).  Click here to review the scoring matrix used for standard grants. See instructions for applying for grants with access codes. 

Please see the current open RFPs below for more details.
