Does your organization have a plan for making a difference in the health of the community? If so, we'd like to hear from you.

The Owensboro Health Community Benefit program provides financial assistance to designated nonprofit organizations, governmental or public entities who are working to address identified community health priorities based on their local community health needs assessments and/or community health improvement plans.

Apply for a Grant

In order to apply, an organization's activities or project must:

  • Address identified health needs
  • Seek measureable improvement in health status, access to care or use of healthcare resources.

Funds are also available to non-profit entities offering specific programs and activities not directly related to health care, but which address root causes of health problems.
