Healthcare Foundation of La Porte now accepting more grant requests


In pursuit of its mission and vision, Healthcare Foundation of La Porte (HFL) is inviting grant proposals for health and wellness projects and programs through March 5, 2021. HFL’s mission is to empower residents to live healthy and well to achieve the vision of La Porte County becoming one of the 10 healthiest communities in Indiana by 2030. 

As of Jan. 15, HFL’s grant portal is open. HFL welcomes proposals for Strategic Grants and Responsive Grants:

  • Strategic Grants address specific, board-approved, major community needs with a defined impact on health and wellness. HFL’s three Strategic Areas are Healthy Children, Healthy Living, and Healthy Minds.
  • Responsive Grants meet community health and wellness needs that fall outside of the three  Strategic Areas. Responsive Grant proposals must demonstrate a connection to HFL’s mission and vision. 

HFL is accepting proposals through March 5, 2021. Organizations interested in applying for a Strategic Grant over $25,000 are required to submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) as a first step by Jan. 29. All grant applications and  letters of inquiry must be submitted online through the grant portal to be considered for funding: That website also contains grant FAQs, tutorials and instructions for how to apply.  

Since HFL’s first grant cycle in 2017 to the end of 2020, over $17 million has been invested in our community. To  learn more about grants awarded and community impact, please visit HFL’s 2017-2020 Report to the Community at this link: 2017 – 2020 Report to the Community – Healthcare Foundation of La Porte.
