Connections for Cardiovascular Health (CCH) Next Generation Grants provide funding to nonprofit organizations working to improve cardiovascular health at the community level in the United States. Grants will be awarded to organizations who have never before received funding from the Foundation's CCH program.

Programs should identify with one of the 6 innovative approaches commonly used to improve cardiovascular health at the community level or choose one of their own innovative approach. Consult the Foundation's Effective Program Practices Guide.

  1. Leveraging access for uninsured and underserved participants to improve cardiovascular knowledge and health
  2. Bringing programs to participants
  3. Educating children to serve as heart health ambassadors
  4. Improving cardiovascular health through food-based programs
  5. Using health coaches/promotores to improve cardiovascular health
  6. Providing culturally sensitive program interventions to maximize participant outcomes

Preference will be given to applications from the top 20 states by cardiovascular disease mortality and from states where the Foundation has never previously funded a program. Applications from rural applicants are encouraged. The Foundation will also be working with mentors from previously-funded organizations to support newly-funded organizations.

Organizations who receive funding in the 2020 application cycle may be eligible for a second year of continued funding in 2021, based on performance and assessment.
