2021 Phase I

Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded 20 area organizations more than $220,000 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 ninety-five proposals were received from regional nonprofits and were ranked on impact and merit by the Trinity board. Issues addressed include physical and behavioral healthy life choices, neighborhood/community strengthening, COVID-19 community relief & recovery, and open topics. 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 eight small grants will go to nonprofits across the community. This year’s recipients and their projects include:
