Saint Vincent Hospital’s Community Benefits Program (SVH-CBP) is seeking grant proposals for health-related initiatives that serve vulnerable populations in the Greater Worcester area and throughout Central Massachusetts. SVH-CBP supports causes that affect the health of our communities and funds qualified 501 (c) 3 organizations that meet the eligibility criteria and operate in the Hospital’s focus areas. While all types of health-related initiatives may apply for funding, this year the Committee is encouraging applications that are geared towards mental health prevention, intervention, and the broad continuum of care involved in the treatment of mental health.
Requests for funding should include a completed grant application along with supporting documentation, which should include:
- an explanation of how the request meets the mission of the Saint Vincent Hospital Community Benefits Program
- the need to be addressed and the number of people to be served
- the geographical area of service
- the strategies that will be used to meet the stated healthcare needs
- a method of evaluation.
