State Grant Writing Assistance Fund

The Affordable Care Act offers a number of funding opportunities to state government agencies to support their efforts implementing the health reform law. As a result of budgetary and staffing constraints, many states have found it difficult to prepare proposals to access these funds.

To address this issue, Grantmakers In Health (GIH), with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, announces the availability of the GIH State Grant Writing Assistance Fund. The fund will provide up to $15,000 in matching funds per state to grant makers who are interested in offering grant writing support to state government agencies.

Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis until the fund is depleted. The full proposal request is available on the GIH website. Questions can be directed to Anna Spencer, GIH senior program associate, at 202.452.8331 or
