Health

Selected grantsThe Prince Charitable Trusts’ Health Program supports projects that improve morale among health care providers in hospitals and community-based medical settings. Projects should respond to immediate or emerging needs identified by staff that, once addressed, would improve morale by building capacity to provide quality care.

Priority is given to morale proposals that will result in better health outcomes for low-income children and youth in Chicago.

Past projects have addressed topics such as:

  • childhood obesity
  • transitioning to the medical home model of care
  • implementation of new technology
  • increasing pediatric clinic visits and/or services

The focus may be individual units/departments or organization wide. Health funding must go toward specific morale projects and cannot be used for general operating expenses such as ongoing staff salaries.

Prior to submitting a proposal, grantseekers are encouraged to discuss their project with one of the Trusts’ program officers.
