Maximum Grant Amount
February 26, 2019
Telligen Community Initiative is accepting letters of inquiry for the annual grant cycle.
The Strategic Funding Priorities are:
1. Health Innovation
This area is encouraged to think creatively and differently regarding issues and opportunities that can bring innovation to the way we all envision health.
2. Healthcare Workforce Development
TCI provides resources in this funding priority to help educate, recruit, and retain a diverse, high quality workforce that is geographically distributed and more accessible to vulnerable populations and communities.
3. Social Determinants of Health/Health Equity
The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. The social determinants of health can be most responsible for resulting health inequities. TCI believes in advancing health equity and achieving this requires novel approaches to positively address the social determinants of health. The range of personal, social, economic, and environmental factors that influence health status are known as determinants of health. It is the interrelationships among these factors that determine individual and population health. This interrelationship and connection to health is a connection TCI seeks to support.
There are numerous examples of programs that would be considered under each funding priority. Please review the detailed 2019 Request for Proposals document for that information.
Eligible applicants must be recognized as a federally tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, an accredited school, or a public/governmental agency located in the states of Colorado or Oklahoma. Examples could include a public school, public library, local public health department or state governmental agency.
