The Pisgah Health Foundation has opened its second community grant funding opportunity, with letters of intent due by November 7.

Organizations working to support this mission are invited to submit online a letter of intent (LOI), the first phase in the grant process. After a review of the LOIs, selected organizations will be invited to begin the online application process for grant funding.

The Pisgah Health Foundation has devoted itself to addressing social determinants of health (SDoH) in our region. SDoH are factors in people’s lives that either make it easier, or more difficult, to be as healthy as possible. PHF has chosen to seek impactful changes in the areas of:
– Childhood Education
– Food Insecurity
– Housing and Homelessness
– Health Education, Obesity, Substance Abuse, and Mental Health
– Social Cohesion
They encourage organizations working in one or more of these areas to participate in the grant process and complete the online letter of intent. Special consideration will be given to WNC region C4: Buncombe, Haywood and Madison Counties.
