Application Procedures

The Michael Reese Health Trust is currently involved in a strategic planning process that will result in revised funding priorities.  Because of this process, we are not accepting new applications at this time and will skip the Letter of Inquiry (LOI) submissions for the June 15th deadline (Fall cycle).

Organizations that currently have a grant from us will automatically be invited to submit a proposal for continued funding, without having to submit the prerequisite LOI.  This does not mean that another year of funding is guaranteed, only that there is a one-stage application process instead of the normal 2-stage process.  The proposal deadline will be Tuesday, August 1st, by 5 pm.  Instructions will be sent soon.  

If you need further information, please contact Jennifer Rosenkranz ( or 312.726.1008).
