The Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City (The Foundation or HCF) 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 six-county service area (Missouri: Cass, Jackson, Lafayette Counties; Kansas: Allen, Johnson, Wyandotte Counties). The Foundation is committed to supporting high-quality activities that produce measurable improvement in access and quality of health. Demonstrating the need for grant-funded activities, tracking/reporting outcomes, and responsible use of grant funds are basic expectations of the Foundation. Each year, HCF sets aside a limited amount of to fund proposals that are based upon applicants’ determination of a need and consistent with the target population and service area. These grants are called Applicant Defined Grants (ADGs).

Because the University of Missouri System is limited to one application each year, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, January 4, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages, including the following: 1) the purpose, anticipated amount, and partner organizations for the proposed project; 2) problem or need to be addressed by the project; 3) issues affecting the proposed target group(s) or community(ies); and 4) client and/or community outcomes and how they will be measured.


Applicant Defined Grants are limited to no more than $50,000 per proposal. Collaboration and the leveraging of funds are important to the Foundation, and preference will be given to applicants that leverage resources from other sources. 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 external cash and in-kind resources.
