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, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

If the organization anticipates that the project will begin later in the year, the budget should reflect that project timeline (e.g., a September 2020 start date would represent a 10-month timeline). If the project extends beyond June 30, 2021 (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 2021 grant period (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022). Any contract extension 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.

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 12, 2020 from 2:00- 4:00 pm. Access the webinar by RSVP’ing to 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. All applicants are strongly encouraged to participate.
