Read instructions for submitting a full proposal, download required forms, and learn about the review process.
Full proposals may be submitted to the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) in three circumstances: (1) solicited by program staff; (2) through a request for proposals (RFP) process; or (3) invited upon review of an unsolicited letter of inquiry. Proposals should be addressed to CHCF staff who requested the proposal or as instructed in the RFP.
A complete grant proposal should include:
Applicants are encouraged to use CHCF Budget templates, or may create a similar budget using a spreadsheet program such as Excel. Budgets may be divided into separate worksheets for each year of a multi-year project, or by major tasks or phases of the work if appropriate.
Grant decisions based on full proposals are made by CHCF staff or the board of directors depending on the size of the request.
Questions about writing or submitting a proposal should be addressed to CHCF staff who requested it. For general questions, such as how to complete the budget forms, contact CHCF Grants Administration. Proposals should be submitted to the appropriate staff as instructed.
