Strategic Grant Direction
New Grant Model Coming Soon!
Through our strategic planning process, the Michael Reese Health Trust will focus its support and accelerate turnaround times between application and funding decision.
We ask for your patience while we construct this new model. We plan to have the information you need on our website by December, 2017.
In the meantime, please contact your Program Officer if you have questions.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Spring 2018 will be the next grant cycle for the Trust. This will allow time to develop the funding strategies within each area. Should you have questions or wish to discuss how your organization might partner with the Trust, please reference our news page to contact the program officer associated with the area of focus.
