San Joaquin Valley Health Fund advocacy funding opportunities available

November 6th, 2020

The San Joaquin Valley Health Fund will award funding for eligible community-based nonprofits through two separate and distinct funding opportunities: IHHEEL Advocacy grants and COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency Advocacy grants.

Both types of grants are focused on identifying a specific non-lobbying policy/systems change target that would advance the San Joaquin Valley Health Fund IHHEEL (Immigration, Health, Housing, Education, Environmental Justice, Land Use and Planning) Policy Platform over a one-year grant period. Grants must propose goals, objectives, activities and anticipated outcomes aligned with the IHHEEL Policy Platform and be intended to lead to the advancement of health and racial equity in the San Joaquin Valley. Applicants must choose and apply for one or the other type of grant. Applicant organizations may not apply for both grant types.

Funding Available

Applicants may request an amount up to $50,000 for IHHEEL Advocacy grants OR up to $50,000 for COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency Advocacy grants. If an organization’s annual budget in the San Joaquin Valley is less than $250,000, they must identify in the application narrative why the organization has the capacity to implement the proposed project.
