A new applicant has either never received a grant from the Health Trust or is a past grantee that has already submitted the final report for the previous grant. If you are a new applicant, you will need to complete the Letter of Inquiry, and attach the organization's IRS Determination Letter, Organization Budget, and Project Budget, if the request is not for general operating support.
2. Create a User Account
When you click on the link to begin your application you will be asked to create a user account and password. After you create your account, you will receive an automated email with a link confirming the user account and password. SAVE this email or account information for future reference.
In order to complete an application, you will be asked to complete an Eligibility Quiz and agree to the Health Trust’s Grant Proposal Terms and Conditions.
