The Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City Healthy Lifestyles RFP will focus on Nutrition and Fitness and Preventing Tobacco Use for ages 0 - 25.

The Foundation strives to improve access and quality of health for the medically indigent and underserved individuals and communities by providing financial support and leadership directed toward all aspects of health in Kansas City, Missouri and a 6-county service area (Missouri: Cass, Jackson, Lafayette Counties; Kansas: Allen, Johnson, Wyandotte Counties). Applicant organizations must maintain ongoing operations, including staffing and programs, within Kansas City, Missouri, and/or the Missouri or Kansas service areas. All funded services/programs must be designed and carried out for the benefit of the target population living in these areas.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, August 4, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include the following: 1) a Need or Case Statement that discusses the problem or need to be addressed by your project or program, 2) a Grant Purpose Statement that explains the project/program that the proposed grant will fund, followed by a brief description of project/program activities, and 3) the Amount of Funding to be requested and the proposed grant period.


The Foundation anticipates awarding $3 million in Healthy Lifestyles grants. Grant periods can range from one to three years. The Foundation will consider requests for 50 - 75% of the cost of the proposed project or activity. It is recommended that matching funds use a balanced approach of cash and in-kind resources.
