The deadline to apply for a grant from a Barton Health Grant is Friday.
Barton Health Grants provide funding for programs targeted at underserved populations and/or impacting health status of the community. The total grant amount available for 2013 is $25,000, which will be dispersed between five and 10 local organizations, according to a press release from Barton Health. Programs considered this year will address the community’s most pressing health needs as identified in Barton’s 2012 Community Health Needs Assessment. In order of priority they are: substance abuse and tobacco use, access to healthcare services, and mental health.
Grant proposals will be accepted online at www.bartonhealth.org/grants or in person at the Barton Foundation office at 2092 Lake Tahoe Blvd. suite 600, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150. Applicants chosen to receive a grant will be notified in September and awards will be distributed at the annual Philanthropy Day Celebration on Nov. 8.
