As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, one of Buhl Regional Health Foundation’s greatest concerns is the health, wellness and safety of our community. BRHF asks that you please join us by doing your part in maintaining social distance, wearing a mask, and staying home if you feel sick.

To Non-Profit Community Agencies:

This spring, BRHF quickly to established a way to help our local community agencies with basic hardships resulting from the current COVID-19 pandemic. Our funding strategy shifted from our traditional granting procedure to one that allowed us to quickly meet COVID-19 Emergency Needs. Our COVID-19 Emergency Funding Process is available to local non-profit agencies. To date we have funded around $100,000 to meet the urgent needs of our community.

To our Grantees:

We understand that COVID-19 may have interfered with current grants regarding scheduled activities and timelines. As necessary, we encourage you to make the required changes to postpone activities and plans. If in any way your current grant has interrupted your ability to provide the services intended, please reach out to either Jennifer Barborak, Executive Director or Kimberly Duncan, Grants Program Manager to discuss any changes or concerns. We will be very flexible with interim and final reporting for any programs affected during this time period.


Our staff members are back in the office with enhanced cleaning protocols, masks and social distancing. We ask that you contact us via email or by phone, if possible.
