  • Healthy Living/Chronic Disease Prevention & Management
  • Access to Care/Social Determinants of Health/Transportation
  • Older Adults, specifically focused on Dementia and Alzheimer’s

The purpose of Vidant Health’s Community Benefit Grants Program is to positively impact the health of people who live in the communities we serve. The program focuses on early detection, wellness and prevention, community health initiatives and direct health care services. This is accomplished by providing education, health management tools and easier access to local programs for the people who need them most.

Letters of interest are due on or before Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020 at 5 p.m. through electronic submission. To submit a letter of interest on behalf of your organization, visit www.vidanthealth.com/communitybenefit. Only letters submitted through this online process will be accepted. Please be sure that you are linking to The Outer Banks Hospital’s grant program when you submit your letter of interest.

Grants will be awarded as part of the 2020-2021 Community Benefit Grants Program. The grant cycle is July 1, 2020–June 30, 2021. Funding is available for government entities or nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) status in Dare County, in Currituck County and on Ocracoke Island. In 2019, a total of $135,000 was awarded to 10 area nonprofits and agencies.
