Where can organizations apply for funding?
Organizations can apply for funding through our online grants management portal, Fluxx.
Where can organizations learn more about the grant process?
Organizations can find more information about the funding areas by visiting our grantmaking landing page or by getting in touch with a member of the CareQuest Institute grants team.
What types of organizations are eligible for funding?
CareQuest Institute makes grants to nonprofit or not-for-profit organizations in the United States and US territories. The Institute does not make grants to for-profit organizations or individuals.
Should an organization submit a full budget as a part of the concept submission?
No, you don’t need a full budget when submitting a concept, which is the first step in the proposal process. Our hope is that after any concept is approved, the process for writing and submitting a full proposal is collaborative and iterative in a way that can clarify any budget questions.
Is there a funding amount maximum and/or a range for funding?
Coming into a new year with a new strategy, we want to remain flexible in relation to minimums and maximums and consider the scope of your work as well as its alignment with our priorities.
Which organizations need to submit a concept in 2022?
We ask all interested organizations to submit a concept prior to submitting a full proposal. We are still determining the schedule for concept review in 2022.
What budget line items are eligible/not eligible for funding?
CareQuest Institute does not make grants directly to individuals and does not support capital expenses, direct service, mobile vans, or payments for procedures.
Can organizations have conversations with the grants team before applying for funding?
Absolutely! We encourage all organizations to reach out to a member of the grants team to discuss the program or project for which you are seeking funding. To connect with a team member, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
