To apply for a Mission and Ministry Fund planning grant, applicants must agree to follow the CHI-defined process for building healthy communities.  The Process for Building Healthy Communities presents a step-by-step outline of the entire healthy community process. 

Then, complete and submit a Planning Grant Pre-Application.  This form is intended to assist you in evaluating your organization’s vision of a healthy community, understanding the elements of a healthy community initiative, and ensuring the commitment to work with others in forming a collaborative initiative.

When the pre-application has been approved, a planning grant application will be sent to the grant contact person.

Final grant applications will be due on or prior to March 1. Review the entire grant cycle.
