*Please note: With the current crisis showing many emergency needs, the Buhl Regional Health Foundation has made Funding Strategy changes. We have decided to not open the Fall 2020 grant cycle that would have started to accept applications in June of 2020, but rather resume our next grant cycle which we will accept LOI’s beginning December 14, 2020 for funding Spring of 2021. This will allow our Foundation to focus and meet COVID-19 Emergency Needs over the next several months.*
