EHF’s new funding priorities for 2017

See EHF's new grant application process, deadlines and funding priorities.


The last three years have taught us a lot about how we solicit, review and award grants at EHF. We’ve learned through our own experience and through consulting with our grant partners and with foundation colleagues locally and across the country.

In response, we will be clustering grant application reviews based upon EHF strategies, using a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) process, launching a revised grant application, and providing additional information about our priorities for funding in 2017.
