Funding Opportunity for nonprofit organizations in COVID-19 Recovery, Preparedness or Transformation
The Paso del Norte Health Foundation (Health Foundation) seeks Letters of Intent (LOI) from eligible organizations to support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, prepare for a potential second wave or future crisis, and transform their operations for future success.
As the Paso del Norte region begins to emerge from the devastating immediate impacts of COVID-19, the Health Foundation seeks to support nonprofit organizations in their organizational recovery, preparedness, and transformation through grant funding and technical assistance.
Qualified organizations are asked to complete an LOI to begin the process. LOIs will be reviewed and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Applicants are encouraged to participate in RFP workshops specific to Recovery, Preparedness and Transformation. For more information, contact Michael Kelly, Vice President of Programs for the Health Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org before submission.
Deadlines and Schedules
LOIs, and subsequent invited proposals, will be accepted in two rounds. As needs are dynamic and organizations are learning, applicants may submit one proposal each round for any planned approach for organizational recovery, preparedness, or transformation as defined in the RFP. There is not a predefined sum of funds for any specific activity or round of grants. Organizations that might require a different, perhaps accelerated, schedule should contact a Health Foundation Program officer.
