New York, NY, United States – 01-27-2022 (PR Distribution™) –
Funding Opportunities for Nursing-driven Innovations to Improve Care for Marginalized Communities
Continuing its commitment to advancing leading-edge, nursing-driven models of healthcare that target the needs of marginalized populations, The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation today is announcing the latest round of annual funding opportunities for the Hillman Emergent Innovation (HEI), Hillman Emergent Innovation: Serious Illness and End of Life (HSEI), and Hillman Innovations in Care (HIC) programs.
“Investing in nursing-driven solutions that remove barriers to more equitable, person-centered, and trustworthy care is central to our mission of improving the lives of all patients, families and communities,” said Ahrin Mishan, Executive Director of The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation.
A pipeline for nursing-driven innovation
The Foundation supports bold, nursing-driven initiatives that improve the health and healthcare of groups and communities who experience inequity, discrimination, oppression, and indifference. Through a suite of interconnected programs, the Foundation has created a pipeline for innovation by supporting work at different phases of development –– from newly imagined ideas to well-established solutions.
— Hillman Emergent Innovation and Hillman Emergent Innovation: Serious Illness and End of Life accelerate the development of bold, early stage (untested or minimal-evidence) interventions.
— Hillman Innovations in Care advances innovative, evidence-based models of care that are ready to grow.
— Hillman Innovation Dissemination (which accepts proposals by invitation only) amplifies the scaling efforts of established models of care.
More on the Hillman Emergent Innovation and Hillman Emergent Innovation: Serious Illness and End of Life programs
As a continuation of the Foundation’s commitment to combat inequity, the 2022 Hillman Emergent Innovation (HEI) program will be specially focused on the theme of Racism and its Impact on Health. The Foundation is looking for proposals that seek to mitigate the effects of racism on health, narrow gaps in health equity, and challenge conventional strategies for delivering and improving care to populations affected by racism.
As many as five $50,000 grants for work lasting 12-18 months will be awarded.
The Hillman Emergent Innovation: Serious Illness and End of Life (HSEI) program, meanwhile, maintains its broad search for bold, pre-evidence interventions that seek to improve the serious illness and end of life care of marginalized populations. This program will continue its philanthropic partnership with the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations for a second year.
As many as ten $50,000 grants for work lasting 12-18 months will be awarded.
For both programs, the submission period for Letters of Intent begins on Tuesday, February 1, and ends Tuesday, March 8.
More on the Hillman Innovations in Care program
The Hillman Innovations in Care (HIC) program advances innovative, evidence-based models of care that show strong potential for broad replicability. The Foundation seeks proposals for bold, nursing-driven initiatives that improve health outcomes, narrow gaps in health equity, and disrupt conventional approaches to care for marginalized populations.
A pair of 3-year grants for as much as $600,000 each will be awarded.
The submission period for Letters of Intent begins on Tuesday, February 8, and ends Tuesday, March 29.
Who should apply
Believing that transformative ideas are as likely to come from community health clinics as they are from major academic research centers, the Foundation welcomes applications from organizations across the spectrum of care and from practitioners with a range of backgrounds.
