HCHF Announces second Grant

by Luke Osteen


A new round of grants from The Highlands-Cashiers Health Foundation will benefit residents of the Plateau, and the twin communities themselves.


The Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation is deep in the process of enacting a second grant cycle of 2019.

Grant applications are being accepted through 5:00 P.M. Friday, October 18, at hchealthfnd.org/grants. The Foundation invites proposals to address solutions in four focus areas: Health and Access to Healthcare; Education; Economic Stability; and Community Vitality.

“We are particularly interested in innovative and collaborative initiatives,” said Stephanie Edwards, Programs & Grants Committee Chair. “Our Committee and Board will continue active engagement during all phases of the second grant cycle from listening sessions to grant awards.” The Foundation will follow a similar process used during the first grant cycle where grant proposals were vetted according to Board approved best practices.

“With our collective group of Board and Committee Members, we believe that through awarding meaningful grants and reporting measurable impacts we can work together to improve physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing for our community for generations to come” said Foundations Chair Dr. Walter Clark.
