HFL identifies health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” as defined by the World Health Organization. We recognize that wellness is the “active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence” and the six dimensions of wellness are emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual as developed by the National Wellness Institute.
Healthy La Porte Responsive Grants meet community’s health and wellness needs that fall outside of the three Strategic Grant Areas (Healthy Living, Healthy Children and Healthy Minds) and demonstrate a connection to HFL’s mission and vision. Grant requests may be up to $25,000.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications that fall within the scope of HFL’s Strategic Grant Areas (Healthy Children, Healthy Living, Healthy Minds) should be submitted as Strategic Grant proposals.
