EHF’s guide to federal funding opportunities

From teen pregnancy programs to rural transportation projects, the federal government offers specific grants to clinics and other organizations focused on health. Now, EHF’s Research team is going through hundreds of federal funding opportunities available each month and narrowing down the massive list. Each month, we’ll be sharing information on grants that may be relevant to clinics and organizations working in community health across Texas.

“We think this can serve as a great ongoing guide to specific grants available that most organizations didn’t know existed,” said Shao-Chee Sim, EHF’s VP for applied research.

The grants vary in amount and project size, but the list offers a window into what’s currently being funded by many different federal government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and more.

For example, one grant from the Department of Transportation is looking to find and test public transportation solutions that increase access to care. Another grant opportunity is searching for participants in a pilot program looking at the effectiveness of assisted outpatient treatment programs for those with serious mental illness.

“Just looking at the available grants can give you ideas of how to think about and approach specific issues in your community,” said Sim. “They can help you measure the capacity of your organization and provide details on successful programs for you to consider now or in the future.”
