The Blue and You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas accepts applications for mini-grants. Proposed projects should be designed to positively affect the health of Arkansas residents. Projects that focus on health care delivery, policy, or economics will receive priority.
Projects must demonstrate strong community, regional or statewide support, such as co-funding by other community, regional, or statewide organizations or groups. Projects should also demonstrate operational and financial viability that will survive and continue after funding from the Foundation ends.
Organizations eligible to receive grants from the Blue & You Foundation:
* Must be an Arkansas-based organization or governmental agency (or if the applying organization is located outside of Arkansas, the project to be funded must specifically benefit Arkansans)
* Any 501(c)(3) public charity, public school, governmental agency or nonprofit hospital in Arkansas is eligible to apply. Churches are eligible, but their health improvement program must reach beyond its own congregation. Grants are not made to individuals.
* Cannot be a private foundation under IRC § 509(a)
* Primary grantee cannot have a contractual relationship with Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, its subsidiaries or affiliates
Applications for mini-grants are accepted in the months of January, February and March.
