GHFA Seeking Applicants for Last Cycle of the 2020 Community Health Grant Awards Program 

Deadline to Apply Extended to July 13th

The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) has opened the application period for the final cycle of the 2020 Community Health Grant Awards program. In March, GHFA paused the program in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and began awarding smaller Immediate Needs Grants to Georgia Academy of Family Physician (GAFP) member identified urgent needs in their communities.

Current GAFP members including medical students, residents and active/ life members are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 to support GAFP member affiliated community organizations that support program priorities including underserved populations and community programs that promote healthy practices consistent with the principles of Family Medicine. The application deadline for the final cycle of 2020 is July 13th.  Grant awards will be announced in August 2020.

Over the last seven years the Community Health Grant Program has awarded more than $366,000 in grants back to GAFP members, residency programs, FMIG groups and their communities.
