Kansas Health Foundation Impact and Capacity Grants Program funds organizations working to address the impacts of COVID-19 in Kansas. The program helps nonprofits maintain operations and continue or expand critical services to support communities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Funding is available under two categories:

  1. COVID-19 response - examples of supported activities under this category include, but are not limited to:
    • Funding for critical safety-net needs for the clients of nonprofits, including medical care, food security, childcare, housing, and transportation for those affected by the pandemic
    • Support to build and develop pandemic education and prevention strategies for an organization's staff and/or clients
    • Prevention-related expenses for items such as sanitizing supplies and equipment for frontline workers, or professional cleaning of common areas of nonprofits
    • Telehealth and remote educational support, including equipment and broadband access
    • Unexpected work-from-home expenses, which could include establishing collaboration platforms and secure file sharing
  2. COVID-19 recovery - examples of supported activities under this category include, but are not limited to:
    • Costs for offering services to a nonprofit's clients in ways that reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19, such as pick-up or home-delivered meals or virtual service delivery
    • Support to stabilize critical safety-net nonprofits, such as healthcare clinics, food banks, schools, and mental health centers, that provide services to vulnerable populations
    • Operational funding, supplies, equipment and other program costs for organizations to minimize exposure for high-risk groups while still meeting their basic needs

Eligible organizations are 501 (c)(3) nonprofits, government entities, and churches. To be eligible, 50% or more of the organization's target population must reside in the state of Kansas.
