Last update


Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) is offering Grants for Assessment and Planning (GAP) to assess needs and plan for initiation or expansion of services to the uninsured, underinsured and underserved residents of the MFH service region. This program assists communities in identifying and quantifying important health issues as a basis for developing and implementing action plans for dealing with those issues. Organizations successfully completing (or having completed) a community assessment will receive priority consideration for a follow-up planning grant. Priority will be given to assessment and planning efforts that focus on MFH’s priority grantmaking areas, although consideration will be given to similar efforts that fall within the broad definition of health used by MFH.

Because the University of Missouri System is limited to three applications for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm, Monday, January 29, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize: 1) whether the proposal will be for planning and/or assessment activities, 2) the content, target area and approach of the assessment, and 3) the broader purpose for which the assessment results will be used.
