The “Buhl Regional Health Foundation Online Grant Portal,” streamlines the application process and provides an impartial presentation format for the applicants. It also allows the BRHF staff, Grants Committee, and Board of Directors, who are responsible for recommending and approving grants for funding, a controlled and structured tool that will assist in guiding them through the grant review cycle timeline. Here are details about applying for a grant and an instructional video.
In direct response to the needs of the interested members of the community who attended the Forum on October 19, 2016, the dual focus of this grant cycle’s funding is “Access to Healthcare” and “Addressing Mental and Physical Health Needs.” All grant applications must focus on positively impacting one or both of these needs within the community. The BRHF will be awarding the first grants in October 2017. After the first grant cycle, grants will be awarded twice per year, in March and September.
