Brief Description: 

Inspired by the health access inequities exposed (or exacerbated) by the “dual pandemics” of COVID-19 and racial injustice, and in response to numerous one-on-one conversations with their grantee partners, the VNA Foundation’s Inclusion Grants are for specific projects designed to increase access to health and human services for under-resourced people of color, immigrants & refugees, and/or English Language Learners in the North Penn region.

Inclusion grants will provide up to $30,000 per organization in multi-year project funding, with additional Research Grants available for up to $2,500. The process is intentionally flexible with no hard deadlines. Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis from July 1, 2021 through March 1, 2022. If applicants have limited English proficiency and wish to schedule a session to communicate project goals via phone or Zoom with the use of a translator (rather than in written form online), the VNA Foundation would gladly accommodate those requests.

Applications accepted on a rolling basis through March 1, 2022
