In Progress

Across New York State, mission-focused organizations—NYHealth grantees and non-grantees— continue to develop smart, innovative, and timely work relevant to the Foundation’s program areas: Healthy Food, Healthy LivesPrimary Care; and Veterans’ Health. These organizations should and could be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at regional, statewide, and national conferences, meetings, and other convenings, both in person and online. Yet, because of a lack of time and resources, they often are unable to do so. To address this issue and increase opportunities for organizations to showcase their work, NYHealth awards grants through its Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Primary Care; and Veterans’ Health Request for Proposals (RFP).

Through this RFP, NYHealth sponsors a range of nonprofits, community-based organizations, health departments, and organizations with limited resources to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to the Foundation’s program areas.
