The Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte’s 2017 Grant Application Cycle opened June 16, 2017. HFL has budgeted $3.5 million for local organizations whose proposed programs and services empower residents to live healthy and well in and around LaPorte.

“This first year of HFL awarding grants is incredibly exciting but is also new,” said Maria Fruth, president and CEO of HFL. 

To take a closer look at LaPorte’s County Health Rankings, visit the HFL page www.ten2030.org. This site provides County Health Rankings data, a Community Scan compiled by The Northern Trust Company, a LaPorte Health Needs Assessment done by local hospitals and organizations, and information about local health and wellness resources.

HFL has been working to compile and promote information about organizations that attend the health and wellness needs of the community. If your organization is not listed under “LaPorte Health and Wellness Resources” but you would like it to be, please email HFL at contact@hflaporte.org.

“Ten 2030 is a resource for the community. Our hope is that residents of LaPorte will use Ten 2030 to find health and wellness programs and services that meet their needs, and local organizations will use the data to determine what needs in the community still have to be met, best practices for creating programs to meet those needs, and funding sources for those programs,” said Fruth.

The mission of the Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte is to empower residents to live healthy and well in and around the community. This not-for-profit foundation’s vision is for LaPorte to be among the 10 healthiest communities in Indiana by 2030.
