Healthy Greenville 2036

Healthy Greenville 2036: A bold health initiative for Greenville County

About Healthy Greenville      Request for Proposal (RFP)     Q & A*

Greenville Health System will provide $4 million each year for the next 20 years to the Greenville Health Authority Board of Trustees, which will administer a grants program called Healthy Greenville 2036 in support of health-related care, health research and health education initiatives to benefit the residents of Greenville County.  (See link to grant application website below)

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.
