Mother Cabrini Health Foundation Holds Webinar for 2022 Statewide Grant Program

LeadingAge NY reported the announcement of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation's 2022 Statewide Grant Program in last week's Intelligence newsletter. Members should review the website for more information, including the recording of the April 26th webinar on the 2022 grant application process, as well as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the program, which will be available on the site by the end of the week.

The Statewide Grant Program is a competitive grant process and typically awards one-third of its 1,000 applicants. While the program includes the term "Statewide," applicants do not have to have a statewide presence and can serve local or regional populations. The typical grant size is $75,000 and must be spent in the one-year cycle for which it is granted. The two grant terms each run for 12 months starting in October 2022 and January 2023.

Letters of inquiry are to be submitted by 5 p.m. on Fri., May 13th. Invitations to apply are issued in June, and applications are due in July. The program serves tax-exempt organizations with a general budget of at least $750,000, but organizations with smaller budgets may be considered.

General funding categories relate to health care and health-related needs, including addressing social determinants of health:

  • Low-income individuals and families
  • Youth and young adults
  • Persons with special needs
  • Veterans
  • Young children, pregnant women, and new moms
  • Older adults
  • Immigrants and migrant workers

Eligibility terms can be found here. Some examples of funding acceptable per the FAQs:

  • Mobile units of care
  • Healthy affordable food programs 
  • Wrap-around services for vulnerable populations 
  • Homeless health care fellowship program, which includes training of volunteers 
  • Staff training
  • Capital projects, including improvements and new construction
  • Nursing scholarships for low-income or underserved New Yorkers

The webinar will be posted on the website and provides an overview of the program, project eligibility, as well as a walk-through of the application, creating an account, etc. There are no thresholds for service such as individuals served or required regional presence. The program will fund a full or partial project budget. Lastly, no feedback is provided for rejected applications.

LeadingAge NY members are encouraged to learn more and apply.
