Community Power Grants provide core support (or general operating support) funding for community-based organizations in Washington working to improve health equity by dismantling systemic barriers and fostering community well-being.
- Organizations and fiscally-sponsored projects that may be smaller or newer, and that have less access to philanthropy and major donors
- Organizations founded, led, and governed by people who reflect their communities
- Organizations that represent a place- and/or
identity-based community who is most adversely impacted
by health inequities such as:
- Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color
- Queer, transgender, and gender-nonconforming people
- People with disabilities
- Immigrants and refugees
- People living with low incomes
- People who identify with more than one condition above
- Places may include tribal lands, small or medium-sized cities, unincorporated areas, and communities in rural settings
- Community-powered work with a vision of health equity
- Organizations working to change current structures that uphold the status quo of who has access to social, political, and economic power
Nonprofit organizations, government entities, tribal governments, and fiscally sponsored groups in Washington are eligible to apply.

Inatai Foundation is working to make their grant process accessible to people with disabilities, people who communicate in languages other than English, and organizations that are new to working with philanthropy. The Foundation will work to provide:
- Interpretation and translation services to ensure access to guidelines, applications, and supplemental information in languages other than English
- Large-print formats of materials and instructions
- Alternative application methods, including over the phone, by video or voice recording, and on paper as opposed to digital submission
- Support from professional grant writers
