Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation Invites Proposals to Hillman Innovations in Care Program

The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation supports nurse-led healthcare innovation and research, with the goal of improving patient care in hospitals, clinics, homes, and communities. Nurses operate at the junction of public policy, medical science, systems-based healthcare delivery, and one-on-one patient care. Drawing on its knowledge of this unique and important role, the foundation believes it has valuable insights with respect to relevant modes of research and alternative models that can lead to more equitable, patient-centered health care.

In support of this mission, the foundation is accepting applications to the Hillman Innovations in Care Program. Established in 2014, the program supports creative, non-traditional, collaborative projects that address the needs of underserved populations, including the homeless, racial and ethnic minorities, and members of the LGBTQ community. The foundation has indicated three specific targets of interest for this particular opportunity: maternal and child health, older adult care, and chronic illness management.

In 2019, the foundation will award two multiyear grants of up to $600,000.

Applications are welcome from organizations and practitioners working in the healthcare sector.

See the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation website for program guidelines, a list of previously funded projects, and application instructions.

Deadline: March 4, 2019
