To realize our vision of making Lincoln the healthiest community in the nation, CHE makes grants available to any nonprofit organization or government agency interested in improving the health of people in Lincoln and Lancaster County. In the Spring 2017 grant cycle, CHE offered the following grant types:
Targeted Grants: Proposals must address one or more of the yearly funding priorities established by the CHE Board of Trustees. Targeted grants can be any amount for up to three years of support. This program follows the published funding timeline each year.
Spark! Grants: Spark! grants enable grantees to test a new idea or transform a traditional approach. Spark! grant applications must address one or more of the current funding priorities. Spark! grants are for one year only and are not renewable. The maximum amount available through a Spark! grant is $20,000. This program follows the published funding timeline each year.
Other types of grants may be available in other grant cycles. To find out which grant types are included in a specific grant cycle, see the applicant information for that cycle. Download applicant information from the most recent applicant workshops below.
