Public Welfare Fund supports health reform, worker initiatives

The Public Welfare Foundation focuses funding on three funding programs: criminal/juvenile justice, health reform and worker’s rights.

The Criminal/Juvenile Justice Program aims to lower overall rates of incarceration and help eliminate unequal treatment of African Americans and Latinos.

The Health Reform Program seeks to expand effective consumer advocacy for health care, particularly on the state and local levels.

The Workers’ Rights Program seeks to improve the lives of working people by ensuring their basic legal rights to safe, healthy and fair conditions at work..

The foundation sets three deadlines per year, generally in March, January and November. Applicants submit five-page letters of inquiry six to eight weeks prior to a deadline, with some chosen to submit full proposals.

The next deadline is March 29, thus applicants should submit letters of inquiry by late January. The other 2010 deadlines haven’t been set.
