KHF awards health improvement grants to 17 organizations

The Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) has awarded more than $362,000 to 17 organizations across the state in an effort to build capacity to reduce health disparities through its Impact and Capacity Grants (ICG) Initiative.
These grants of up to $25,000 are given to nonprofits addressing at least one of KHF’s four impact areas: educational attainment, access to care, healthy behaviors or civic and community engagement.
“These grants for direct health-improvement projects and building organization capacity will help address health needs of Kansans,” said Michael Lennen, KHF interim president and CEO. “We look forward to seeing what difference these projects can make.”
