Intermountain Community Care Foundation Grants

Intermountain’s Priority Areas

The Intermountain Community Care Foundation aligns its grant funding with priorities identified during our Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The CHNA helps us in identifying significant community health needs, especially for low-income residents in Utah and Southeast Idaho (Cassia County and Minidoka County) communities. Based on the CHNA, our priorities areas are outlined below each grant opportunity.

Grant Opportunities

The Intermountain Community Care Foundation offers grants in three categories:

Each category has a different criteria and scope and separate applications.

How Much Should You Ask For?

If the program for which you seek funding falls into one of the above categories, you are invited to make application for funding.

To honor the time and energy of the Board in reviewing your application – as well as your time and energy in preparing the grant application – please don't apply unless your program or project fits into one of the categories listed above.

If you have any questions as to whether your project qualifies, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss it with you. The majority of our grants are in the $5,000 to $50,000 range. Over two-thirds are at or under $15,000.

When to Apply

Intermountain Community Care Foundation grant applications can only be accepted between February 1 and March 1, and then August 1 to September 1. If you attempt to apply during times other than those windows, your application will not be considered.
