Capacity Building Grants

Background

In order to develop an accurate perspective of La Porte’s health and wellness, it was also necessary to gain an understanding of the resources that were already available and serving the community. HFL set about the instructive process of identifying community organizations and agencies that impact the area’s health and wellness and invited them to introduce themselves and their programs to our board and staff. Through this process, we learned that many community organizations are eager to strengthen the skills and training of their leadership and staff. HFL has identified capacity building as a funding priority to help organizations develop and strengthen the skills, abilities, and resources that are needed to make an even more impactful change in our community.

Our goals for Healthy Partner Grants are:

  • To increase impact of non-profit organizations in our area
  • To strengthen and grow community organizations’ knowledge, infrastructure, management and governance

Results-Based Accountability

Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems. Communities use it to improve the lives of children, youth, families, adults. RBA is also used by organizations to improve the effectiveness of their programs.

RBA starts with the ENDS in mind, and works backwards to MEANS. The approach focuses on the community-level conditions of well-being that leaders are agreeing to be accountable for achieving, and then uses common sense steps to organize collective action to make a positive impact. RBA Overview.

HFL hosted two RBA sessions on July 20, 2017 with Community Solutions, Inc. View the presentation from those sessions here to learn more about RBA. Capacity building opportunities related to RBA will be available in the future.
