2018 Grant Recipients

Grant Recipients

2018 Phase I

On June 6, 2018, Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded 22 area organizations more than $200,000 in grants for this year’s Trinity Health Foundation Phase I awards. These grants will be used to plan community health-related projects that will compete for Phase II implementation grants later this year. More than fifty proposals were received from regional nonprofits and were ranked on impact and merit by the Trinity board. Issues addressed include access to medical/dental care, healthy life choices, mental health and addiction recovery and family strengthening. These groups will use the Phase I funding to research and plan details for project operations and sustainability culminating in a proposal for consideration of Phase II implementation funds.

This year both large organization and small organization grants are being awarded. Eleven Phase I large grants and eleven small grants will go to nonprofits across the community. This year’s recipients and their projects include:
