The Rapides Foundation has several funding opportunities available for health initiatives.
Those include two new Healthy Behaviors grant opportunities for projects that support tobacco prevention and control, access to nutritious food, physical activity and/or substance and alcohol-abuse prevention through strategic actions within the nine area parishes served by the foundation.
These competitive grant opportunities are the Healthy Behaviors Program Grant; the Healthy Behaviors Mini Grant; and the Workforce Opportunity Grant. Grant proposals should impact residents within the parishes of Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon and/or Winn.
Eligibility for grant opportunities vary, but in general, applicants must be nonprofit organizations classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, or a government organization.
