2023 Grant Recipients

Grant Recipients

2023 Phase I

On June 1, Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded 23 area organizations $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 competing for Phase II implementation grants later this year. Close to seventy proposals were received from regional nonprofits and were ranked on impact and merit by the Trinity board. Issues addressed include community partnerships to address behavioral and mental health wellness and addiction, youth initiatives: mental health, addiction, ACEs, housing access, access to care for vulnerable populations, serving the servants, and open topics. These groups will use the Phase I funding to research and plan project operations and sustainability details, culminating in a proposal considering Phase II implementation funds.

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