Current Funding Opportunities

The Paso del Norte Health Foundation seeks Letters of Intent (LOIs) from eligible organizations to promote the Health Foundation’s Strategic Plan for the Healthy Kids Initiative.
Specifically, the Health Foundation seeks LOIs to increase the number of disconnected youth who participate in out-of-school time programs. Youth who are connected, that is are involved in out-of-school time activity, in a safe place, with a caring adult, tend to avoid situations and behaviors that compromise health while engaging in an activity that promotes health.
Preference will be given to approaches that:
- Focus on disconnected youth as defined in the strategic plan,
- Serve youth between the ages of 5-17 years old,
- Reach at least 100 new disconnected youth,
- Offer summer programming and,
- Offer skill building opportunities for disconnected high school youth.
The Health Foundation expects that out-of-school programs will:
- incorporate and strengthen the seven program quality characteristics,
- maintain a focus on increasing connection in the region, and
- address and incorporate healthy behaviors and environments.
Applicants are encouraged to download and read the Healthy Kids Strategic Plan.
LOIs will be reviewed and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Applicants are encouraged to meet with Bianca De León, Program Officer, before proposal submission.
