EmpowerHealth is Healthcare Georgia Foundation’s Capacity Building Grant Program. It is a two-year pilot program which replaces the Foundation’s General Operating Grant Program. A recent Foundation survey of Georgia nonprofit organizations identified capacity building as a top priority funding need for nonprofit health organizations.
The Foundation believes that high performing organizations
delivering effective programs will achieve better health outcomes for patients, clients, and communities.
The goal of the EmpowerHealth Grant Program is to help nonprofit health organizations strengthen their leadership and to improve the ability of both staff and board members to operate at an optimal level to provide better results to their communities.
In September 2016, the Foundation partnered with nationally recognized TCC Group to help implement the EmpowerHealth Grant Program. At the core of the program is the Core Capacity Assessment Tool (CCAT), TCC Group’s evidence-based organizational assessment instrument.
To date, the Foundation has awarded $1,023,000 to 21 nonprofit health organizations in two EmpowerHealth cohort groups. “The funding for EmpowerHealth supports more local organizations’ efforts to harness their talents, assets, and relationships to improve individual and community health,” said Foundation president Gary D. Nelson, PhD.
