Apply for an Early Childhood Health Grant

Step 1: Submit an Initial Application

The Medica Foundation has a two-step, online application process. The process starts by submitting an Initial Application along with any required forms. Initial applications are not letters of intent or concept papers and are fairly detailed. Applications are only accepted during specific times each year.

Step 3: Notification of Grant Recipients

Organizations that receive funding will be contacted by Foundation staff. Grant project dates, payment schedule and required grant reports will be discussed during the phone conversation. A grant agreement will also be sent confirming these details.

Organizations will be notified by letter if their project was not selected to receive funding. You are welcome to contact the Foundation to discuss why a project did not receive funding.
