Access to Health Care iFund FAQ

If my organization received an Access to Health Care iFund grant last year, am I eligible to apply this year?

You may apply this year if the following conditions have been met:

  • The funds have been fully expended
  • All follow-up grant reports have been submitted
  • The program successfully met its goal
My organization has a current grant through one of the other iFund opportunities (Opportunities for Children or Services for Older Adults). Am I eligible to apply for the Access to Health Care iFund grant?

Yes, but only if it is for a different program. We will not consider funding the same program with two different iFund grants.

Can an organization submit a Letter of Interest or grant application for more than one project during a single iFund grant cycle?

No. OCCF will consider no more than one project from an organization during a single iFund grant cycle.

Are applications submitted online?

Yes, after submitting an email requesting access to the application (please refer to the guidelines). If your proposed program and organization appear to meet the guidelines, you will receive an email with a link and access code to the online application.

Will the organizations that apply receive notification if they are not approved?

Yes, all organizations that submit an application will be notified of funding decisions by end of February 2023.
