WILMINGTON – HealthFirst for Clinton County announces they will provide funding for local health-related projects that promote the good health of residents in Clinton County through education, innovation, and patient care support.

• Clinton County Youth Council

• Clinton County Community Action

• Clinton County Squares

• Clinton-Massie Local School District

• East Clinton Band Boosters

• Energize Clinton County

• Health Alliance of Clinton County

HealthFirst for Clinton County has recently restructured their grant process in order to award grants on a more scheduled basis and to encourage community organizations to come up with new and innovative ideas.

Later this year, the organization is looking to fund three larger projects with awards up to $25,000 each. This second grant cycle will have a specific focus which will be announced in the fall. An organization cannot apply for grant money in both the May grant cycle and the fall grant cycle for the same project.

In 2018, HealthFirst for Clinton County granted more than $150,000 to local organizations to support their health-related projects.

Since December 2010, HealthFirst has awarded more than $750,000 to numerous community organizations. HealthFirst also operates the Patient Medication Assistance Program (PMAP) in a collaboration with the Clinton County Commissioners and the Clinton County Health District. PMAP helps area residents apply for free and/or reduced cost medications from major drug-makers

HealthFirst for Clinton County will be offering its next grant cycle in the fall of 2019, with more details to come. To learn more about HealthFirst for Clinton County visit www.healthfirst-cc-oh.org.
