The grant-making will be driven by a Request for Proposal (RFP) that aligns with the grant-making initiative’s desired outcomes. Interested organizations are invited to submit letters of intent outlining their ideas. Following evaluation of the letters of intent, select organizations will be invited to submit a full application for funding. Funding will be awarded to those applicants who best meet the criteria outlined in the RFP, who demonstrate a track record of success with other health-related programs, and who are able to articulate how their program/project will move Greenville County toward our bold vision of being the healthiest county in America by 2036.
To be eligible to receive a grant, an organization must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a government agency, an academic institution, or a collaborative combination of these types of organizations. Collaboration is welcomed and encouraged. Programs and projects must directly benefit residents of Greenville County. The minimum grant will be $250,000 per year, with multi-year requests encouraged.
