March of Dimes Seeks Applications for Community Awards to Help Moms and Babies - Applications due August 4
Maitland, Florida, July 08, 2014
March of Dimes Florida Chapter is seeking applications for their Community Awards grants to support programs that address unmet maternal and child health needs. Awarding grants to organizations is one of the ways the March of Dimes pursues its mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
The goal of the Community Awards program is to identify and fund community-based programs addressing the health concerns of pregnant women and infants in Florida. They must also fall under our 2015 funding priorities.
Community Awards, which can be requested for amounts up to $3,000, may not be used to support the purchase of equipment or furniture, individual tuition or conference fees, dues or membership fees, employee salary, or programs requiring long-term March of Dimes funding. For larger projects, please contact the March of Dimes Florida Chapter to learn more about its Chapter Grants Program.
Applications are being accepted until August 4, 2014, and grantees will be notified on January 5, 2015. The funding period extends from February 15, 2015 to February 14 of the following year. Click here to review the application and the full list of funding priority areas. For more information or questions, please email Donna Poynor, Director of Program Services, or call 352-642-8291.
