JHF Accepting Proposals for Maternal Health Innovation Grants Ranging Between $15,000 - $100,000
Maternal mortality is a serious public health issue in Pennsylvania, with a pregnancy-associated mortality rate of 82 deaths per 100,000 live births. Race, pre-existing health conditions, social determinants of health, and early access to prenatal care have all been linked as contributing factors of poor maternal outcomes.
The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) is operating as the fiscal agent for federal Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Funds provided through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services in order to reduce maternal mortality, morbidity, and to support new families in Pennsylvania.
JHF is currently seeking proposals for innovative maternal care grants which will positively impact maternal health outcomes. Proposals must address the goal of reducing maternal mortality, reducing maternal morbidity, and/or supporting new families in Pennsylvania. Grants may range from infrastructure, information technology, staff, services, materials, etc., so long as applications demonstrate how the grant will benefit pregnant people and/or new families.JHF will continue to consider applications under this RFP through April 30, 2024 or until funding is fully expended.
