Orlando Health Opens Community Grant Program To Central Florida

The program provides grants to address health and wellness needs in the community

ORLANDO – Orlando Health has opened the 2025 cycle of the Orlando Health Community Grant Program. As part of Orlando Health’s ongoing commitment to be engaged and involved in communities throughout Central Florida, it offers competitive grants to assist in coordinating, enriching and supporting efforts that help promote health and wellness in our community.

These grants will serve to provide resources needed to fill a specific health- or wellness-related need. The Orlando Health Community Grant Program will focus mostly on funding initiatives that align with the 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment, specifically initiatives that enhance access to care.

“Central Florida is teeming with organizations doing impactful work in the health and wellness space every day,” said Lainie Fox Ackerman, assistant vice president, Orlando Health External Affairs and Community Benefit. “By investing in organizations that are working toward building a healthier community, particularly in the areas of opportunity we see in the Community Health Needs Assessment, we can expand our own efforts beyond the hospital walls.”

All interested organizations should submit a letter of intent application, which can be accessed by clicking here: Orlando Health Community Grant Program LOI Application. The deadline for letters of intent is June 9.

By June 18, organizations will be notified whether they are moving forward to a full proposal. Only invited organizations will be asked to submit a full grant proposal by July 7. Upon invitation, organizations will be provided instructions for submission. The grant year will run from Oct. 1, 2024 to Sept. 30, 2025.

The grants are one way that Orlando Health is investing back into the Central Florida region by supporting important work that enhances the community. The Orlando Health Community Grant Program awarded nearly $600,000 in its last cycle.
