The mission of the AAF Community Health Foundation, otherwise known as the Harrington Regional Medical Campus (HRMC), is to promote quality of life in the Texas Panhandle through exceptional healthcare, education, and research. Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 HRMC Resident Grant Program and the HRMC Community Health Grant Program. The goal of the grant programs is to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare ultimately leading to an improved quality of life for residents of the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.
Both grant programs are competitive and proposals will be accepted from eligible organizations. Eligible organizations are those that hold a current tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and include a nonprofit organization, recognized government entity: state, county, or city agency, that are requesting funds exclusively for public purposes; a K-12 public school, community/junior college, state college or university; or a faith-based organization with a proposed project that benefits the community at large.
HRMC Resident Grant Program: The HRMC Board will accept grant applications from Medical Center campus resident organizations for projects and capital improvements. Preference will be given to Ronald McDonald House, Turn Center, Amarillo Botanical Gardens, Don Harrington Discovery Center, and Coffee Memorial Blood Center. $21,000 is available and proposals for up to $20,000 will be accepted. High priority will be given to specific project-related proposals. Operational support is a low priority.
HRMC Community Health Grant Program: The HRMC Board will accept grant proposals for healthcare related projects from eligible organizations located throughout the 26-county region. $42,000 is available and proposals for up to $20,000 will be accepted. High priority will be given to specific project-related proposals as well as challenge and/or matching grants. Proposals will be accepted for capital projects, capacity building, innovative projects, and research projects. Operational support is a low priority.
Organizations may only submit one grant application per year; however, Medical Center campus residents may submit a grant application to both the HRMC Resident Grant Program and the HRMC Community Health Grant Program in the same year.
