PHASE 2 – GRANT FUNDING OPPORTUNITY (COMMUNITY REBUILD)

Funding is available to nonprofit organizations whose efforts focus on children, families and communities disproportionately impacted by Covid-19, and/or the nonprofit sector that have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19 in New Mexico. Successful applications will be community-centered (driven/informed), collaborative, multi-sectoral, clearly demonstrate health and racial equity approaches, and focus on systems-level solutions that take up the lessons, experiences, promising innovations, and transformative opportunities from the pandemic to ‘build back better.’

 

Strong proposals will also:

  • Address the disproportionate impact Covid-19 has had on certain populations (e.g., children and families, BIPOC, rural, low-income, people with disabilities, immigrants, elderly, LGBTQ, etc.); and/or, the nonprofit sector in New Mexico.
  • Expand health equity by:
    • Eliminating differences in quality, access, and underlying exposures which make some individuals, communities, and/or non-profits organizations more vulnerable than others.
    • Expanding opportunities for underserved and vulnerable populations and/or the nonprofit sector.
    • Addressing at least one of the social determinants of health (SDOH) such as those indicated by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s Healthy People 2030 or as identified by your community.

Con Alma Health Foundation awards grants, to qualified 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organizations serving the people and communities of New Mexico, each year in support of nonprofits’ efforts to improve their community’s health.

The emphasis of our grantmaking is on attaining long-term policy solutions and health equity that is informed by community voices.

The Foundation grants promote systemic change and are outcome oriented. Successful application requests align with the Foundation’s mission and core values.

Area of Interest and Priorities

Con Alma Health Foundation defines health broadly in the areas of health and human services. The Foundation defines health broadly to include physical, mental, emotional, behavioral, social, oral, environmental, and spiritual health and well-being and has a focus on the needs of the uninsured/underinsured and the medically underserved. It works to advance health equity and reduce health disparities by promoting greater access to health care and improved quality of health care for all–with a special emphasis on people of color and rural and tribal communities.

Priority consideration is given to proposals that demonstrate strong collaborative relationships, have multiple funding sources, a plan for sustainability and address systemic change rather than direct services.
