|Livingwell accepts grant applications|
Livingwell Foundation is accepting its second round of grant applications from healthcare providers in the eight-parish region.
The foundation will accept grant proposals through March 31. The proposals must involve efforts to provide free dental, medical, mental health or vision care to low-income, uninsured working families. Proposals also could come from healthcare providers that would offer the same services to low-income children or adults in a program that provides a clinical learning experience for students enrolled in a professional academic program.
Livingwell Foundation CEO Dr. Jan Corder said the foundation has not determined how much money will be distributed through the foundation's second round of grant funding. However, it will be a smaller amount than the fall grant cycle last year where the foundation awarded more than $650,000 to 15 local organizations.
"We were not sure if we would be able to do the spring grants this year, but we did have a little bit of money, so we decided to do a smaller one (grant cycle) than last fall," Corder said.
"We don't have a dollar amount at this point … we just had some money left over, so it will depend on the grants we get in this time," she said, referring to the amount the foundation will distribute during the spring grant cycle.
Livingwell Foundation was formed following the sale of Glenwood Regional Medical Center to IASIS Healthcare in 2007. The net proceeds from the sale, roughly $44 million, were set aside for Hospital Service District No. 1, which owned Glenwood when the hospital was sold to IASIS. Livingwell Foundation was established to administer the money the sale of Glenwood yielded.
The foundation's funds are public funds. Strict guidelines exist per state law, which outline how those funds can be invested. The foundation chose to only use the annual income earned off the $44 million endowment to fund healthcare initiatives in the eight parishes it serves.
The foundation hopes to award the spring grants in early April.
Once the grant applications have been submitted, an outside source that is experienced in reviewing grant applications will consider them. The reviewers will make their recommendations to the foundation within a week of receiving the grants.
Organizations interested in applying for grants can do so online at the foundation's web site, www.livingwellfoundation.net
