Request for Proposals

The AAF Community Health Foundation, otherwise known as the Harrington Regional Medical Campus (HRMC), is proud to announce new grant programs.

The intent of the Harrington Regional Medical Campus (HRMC) Resident Grant Program and the Harrington Regional Medical Campus (HRMC) Community Health Grant Program 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 for healthcare related projects will be accepted from organizations that hold a current tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; a recognized government entity: state, county, or city agency, including law enforcement or fire departments, that are requesting funds exclusively for public purposes; a K-12 public school, community/junior college, state college or university; or a church or other 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 Campus resident nonprofit institutions and other eligible organizations located in the Medical Campus 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 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 for 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 twelve month period; however, Medical 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

The Amarillo Area Foundation will accept applications for both the HRMC Resident Grant program and the HRMC Community Health Grant Program until noon on Thursday, September 15, 2016.  Applications for both grant programs must be submitted through the Foundation’s online portal which can be accessed on the Internet at aaf.spectrumportal.net. Applications or parts of applications submitted in any other manner (paper, e-mail, etc.) will not be accepted.  For more information regarding the online application please see www.amarilloareafoundation.org/application-2016.
