Please review the following opportunities available via the Central Oregon Health Council:

Opportunity #1: Impact Incentive Fund

The Impact Incentive Fund is open to organizations applying for funding from grantors other than the Central Oregon Health Council (COHC) that meaningfully impacts a Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP) Future State Measure. This fund will match awarded amounts up to a maximum of $250,000. The amount awarded by the COHC can be equal to or less than the amount awarded by the other grantor, up to the $250,000 maximum.

This fund will not apply to any grants awarded by the COHC or RHIP. The purpose of this fund is to focus greater efforts beyond the grants that the COHC awards toward the RHIP. All Impact Incentive Funds are first-come first-serve and this opportunity will end when all funds have been spent.

To learn more, review requirements, or start a request form please visit
Opportunity #2: Grant Writing Support
