Health Safety Net Grants

Most VHCF grants work to increase access to primary care for uninsured Virginians and those who live in areas with limited access to care. VHCF grants can be used to fund innovative approaches to communities’ primary care needs or to replicate one of VHCF’s Models that Made It. Funding focuses on projects that address one or more of these priorities:

  • Developing or expanding patient capacity
  • Establishing a broader scope of services
  • Creating local systems of care
  • Strengthening infrastructure

It’s important to note that VHCF does not fund projects that are just good ideas. It funds projects that are great ideas backed by well thought-out plans of action. Applications are scrutinized thoroughly to ensure strong project leadership, a well articulated vision, a solid operating plan, community support, and long term financial viability.

Interested in applying?  First, check the eligibility requirements and review the grant guidelines to see if your organization or project might be eligible for consideration. Then, contact a Program Officer at (804) 828-5804 (recommended).
