Community Health &
We’re funding opportunities for better health
We believe everyone has the right to enjoy a healthy life. Where a person lives, works, learns and plays can impact individual health as well as the health of our community. Services and programs that are available, accessible, prevention-focused, and culturally welcoming are important building blocks for a healthy community.
Advancing Health Care Innovation & Equity
In 2023 Ashland Community Health Foundation is requesting proposals from nonprofits for community-based health and wellness projects. Grants are made possible through generous contributions in support of community health and wellness.
Generally, ACHF offers grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. We value different perspectives and creative solutions to advance health care innovation and health equity. We believe the catalyst for change comes from organizations working together to leverage the power of partnerships.
The application window is open January 1 – 31, 2023
