Grants to Washington nonprofit, public, and governmental organizations in eligible regions to address health disparities and improve health outcomes in underserved communities. A letter of intent must be submitted prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to maintain and/or expand current funded programs or develop new programs.

Funding under this application is reserved for services located in King County. Eligible projects must demonstrate that the use of the funds will address disparities in health-related access and outcomes among residents of the Puget Sound region (King, Snohomish, Pierce, and Kitsap counties).

The Health Equity Fund accomplishes its grantmaking mission through these strategic goals:

  • Access to health resources: The Health Equity Fund focuses its grantmaking on improving access to a broad range of health resources, not limited to medical care access alone.
  • Improvement in health outcomes: The Health Equity Fund focuses on improving the capability of the healthcare system by supporting resources that link and coordinate health services for underserved communities/populations.

Funding Priorities:

Funding Principles

Funding is focused on access to services, service delivery, and advocacy to improve health-related access and outcomes. Infrastructure and capacity development related to provision of services will also be considered if consistent with the Health Equity Fund stated strategic goals.

This funding prioritizes development of new projects or maintenance or expansion of existing projects to meet Health Equity Fund’s goals. Expansion projects refers to existing programs that seek to significantly increase their client base or projects that are currently provided at one site and are being proposed at an additional site. Continuation projects will be considered if they are responsive to the funding priorities stated above and demonstrate prior success. Health Equity Fund will consider funding projects for which other funding sources have been discontinued. Continuation projects include those proposed to continue at their current service levels that are seeking funds to offset the loss of existing funds or the end of another funding stream.

Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

Award amounts will range from a minimum of $50,000 to a maximum of $200,000.

Term of Contract:

This application is for one-year funding for the budget period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023.

If the organization anticipates that the project will begin later in the year, the budget should reflect that project timeline (e.g., a September 2022 start date would represent a 10-month timeline). If the project extends beyond June 30, 2023 (the end of the grant contract period with Health Equity Fund) the application and budget should only refer to the Health Equity Fund funding cycle.

Based on project and budgetary performance, Health Equity Fund may renew, fully or in part, project awards for the 2023 grant period (July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024). Any contract renewal shall be at the sole discretion of the Health Equity Fund based on a renewal grant process. Health Equity Fund will only fund a particular program for a maximum of three consecutive years through the Major Grant Program.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Non-profit, governmental, and public organizations may apply. Agencies that do not currently have non-profit status may apply for funds through a fiscal sponsor. Should the grant be funded, the sponsor organization will be the contracted grantee and the contract will specify the project to be performed by the sponsored organization.

Funding under this application is reserved for services located in King County. There is no geographic restriction on the residence of clients served or advocacy efforts provided under these funds, as long as the program can demonstrate that the use of the funds will address disparities in health care access and outcomes among residents of the eligible region.

The Health Equity Fund does not fund capital projects. However, smaller, necessary capital items (i.e. computer equipment) will be considered as part of a larger project budget on a case-by-case basis.

Health Equity Fund grants cannot be used for lobbying.

Pre-proposal Conference:

Health Equity Fund will host a comprehensive Pre-Proposal Webinar in which technical assistance will be offered to help applicants understand and complete the application. Only applicants who have submitted an LOI and been invited to submit full applications will be invited to attend.

The webinar is scheduled for February 10, 2022 from 2:00-4:00 pm. Access the webinar by RSVP’ing to the email below. This webinar will: 1) present the philosophy, purpose, and activities of the Health Equity Fund, 2) describe the application process, 3) review the online application forms, and 4) answer applicants’ questions.
