Affordable Care Act Opportunity Fund for Kansas

Request for Proposal
Supported by Kansas Grantmakers in Health

 

Overview



The Affordable Care Act Opportunity Fund (ACA Fund) is a $450,000 donor-advised fund administered by the Topeka Community Foundation.  The ACA Fund was established by five health philanthropies serving the state of Kansas – the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City, Kansas Health Foundation, REACH Healthcare Foundation, Sunflower Foundation: Health Care for Kansans, and United Methodist Health Ministry Fund.

The ACA Fund was established to provide short-term, focused grant funding to entities and/or partnerships that are positioned to apply for and manage federal grant dollars related to ACA implementation.  Grant awards will be in the $5,000 to $30,000 range for a grant term of up to six months (longer-term projects, up to 12 months, will be approved with appropriate justification).  Applicants to the ACA Fund must be doing work in Kansas for the benefit of Kansans, and must have identified at least one federal ACA grant opportunity for which they believe they can be competitive.
