Investments in Health

One of the most powerful ways Health Resources in Action takes on health challenges is through guiding philanthropic and governmental investments in health. With our grantmaking and management solutions, today’s philanthropic and social change leaders can spur catalytic changes in community and population health as well as biomedical research. Working with public and private funding sources, such as hospitals, family trusts, corporate foundations, and public health departments, we bring together those seeking to invest in change with those able to develop solutions. The Medical Foundation at HRiA brings over fifty years of experience, and national leadership in grantmaking, to clients interested in investing in health. Our grantmaking services include:

  • Identifying the most effective set of funding strategies to meet the client’s mission
  • Developing funding announcements, application guidelines, and communication strategies to reach targeted audiences
  • Providing information, training and technical assistance for applicants and grantees to build capacity to effectively address the client’s goals
  • Overseeing all aspects of the online application process and reporting
  • Designing and managing funding-specific web pages for easy access to information and application guidance
  • Creating and convening highly-respected, expert review committees to select the highest-quality application from all responses
  • Disbursing and managing funds
  • Reviewing awardees’ progress and fiscal reports
  • Convening grantees to build grantee capacity and enhance the impact of awards
