2021 Call for Grant Proposals

The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria is seeking grant proposals from qualified nonprofit organizations to improve the health and well-being of youth and adults who live, work and play in the City of Alexandria. Proposals must advance specific goals, strategies and tactics in the Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan in three priority areas—Housing, Mental Health and Poverty. The proposal must address one of the strategies in these priority areas and one or more of their related tactics. The tactics are identified in the Community Health Improvement Plan.

Priority Area: Housing

  • Strategy C: Provide additional needed services in housing to reflect community needs and values.

Priority Area: Mental Health

  • Strategy A: Assure culturally appropriate and trauma-informed mental health resources, services and support for all Alexandria communities.

Priority Area: Poverty

  • Strategy B: Increase availability and lower costs of childcare and programming.


In addition, proposals should describe how funding will be used to promote equity or address inequities or disparities.

New and innovative tactics will be considered as long as there is a direct connection between the innovative tactic and its contribution to achieving one of the three identified strategies.
