Health TRUST Rockdale, the grant-making division of the Hospital Authority of Rockdale County (HARC), will accept applications August 17-21 for its final grant cycle of 2015. Nonprofit or government agencies working to improve the physical and mental health of Rockdale residents are encouraged to consider applying.
Agencies interested in applying for a grant during the upcoming cycle should contact HARC Executive Director Julie Mills at 770-922-1441 or firstname.lastname@example.org prior to August 14.
Participation in a pre-proposal conference/orientation session is mandatory for all new applicants. Previous grantees also should register for a pre-proposal conference if they are seeking funds for a program or project not previously funded. If seeking repeat funding, applicants should notify the director of their intent.
"I am excited about the upcoming grant cycle and the continuation of our partnership with other organizations committed to addressing the healthcare needs of Rockdale residents," said HARC Chairman Allan Jones, noting that HARC has invested nearly $1.3 million in charitable healthcare projects and programs since launching its grants program in May 2010.
To date, the authority has awarded grants to dozens of local agencies, many of which have received multiple grants.
