2017 Direct Relief - NAFC Continuity in Care Grant

The NAFC is thrilled to be partnering with Direct Relief in a Continuity in Care Grant program, making one-year grants available to Free and Charitable Clinics, Charitable Pharmacies and State Associations that are members in good standing of the NAFC.

Innovation and Continuity in Care funding is focused on programs which will allow NAFC member organizations to continue or expand their ability to provide much needed health care for the medically underserved in their communities. The grants will range from $5,000 to $20,000 per organization depending on the scope of the project.

These general operating support grants may be used to cover day-to-day activities or ongoing expenses such as salaries, utilities, office supplies, medical supplies, dental supplies, pharmaceutical supplies, technology maintenance, rent, expansion of services, project costs, technology purchases, and professional development.

Applications must be completed and submitted by 3:00pm Eastern Time this Friday, August 11, 2017. 

For more information or to access the application, please contact Ariana Gordillo, NAFC Director of Outreach at Ariana@nafcclinics.org.  If you are not already a member of the NAFC but want to apply for this grant, contact Ariana today to join!
