Seeking Funding?

In support of our vision to transform Eastern Washington into the state’s healthiest region, we hold an annual open request for proposals, which we call our Responsive Grant Program. This program is designed to address one-time, emergent needs in our seven counties, and any nonprofit serving our region can apply for up to $15,000.

Our Responsive Grant Program also includes a Rural Aging track for projects serving seniors living outside of Spokane County.  We call this track the Rural Aging Responsive Grant Cycle. This is run separately from our Responsive Grant Program.


The 2018 Responsive & Rural Aging Responsive grant cycle WILL OPEN IN APRIL 2018
