Direct Services Grant Program
Healthcare Georgia Foundation firmly believes that high-performing organizations delivering effective programs will achieve better health outcomes for clients, consumers, patients, and communities. The purpose of the Direct Services Grant Program is to reduce health disparities among Georgia’s vulnerable populations.
The Direct Services Grant Program supports existing healthcare services or health promotion programs in both community and clinical settings that fit with the Foundation’s Addressing Health Disparities priority area.
