Healthy people healthy places grants

The Foundation’s Healthy People Healthy Places (HPHP) grants have been made in two categories: Integration of Environment and Human Well-being (Integrated) and Improving Systems for Meeting Basic Human Needs (Basic Human Needs).

Integrated grants are made to organizations using, or committed to using, a deliberate, unified approach to enhancing well-being, prosperity and resiliency of people, communities and nature. These grants support work spanning several Healthy People Healthy Places Strategies – in a genuine combination that meets both environmental and human needs resulting in mutual benefit. 

Basic Human Needs grants recognize that for people and places to truly be healthy, the basic needs of individuals must first be met.  These grants are intended to advance change in the systems and policies under which individuals find themselves requiring assistance to meet their most basic needs.
