Grant Center

The United Hospital Fund awards approximately $1 million annually in grants to support the development of model projects, sponsor research to analyze systemic problems, and foster innovative solutions. Beneficiaries of the Fund’s grants include not-for-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, and health care, academic, and public interest organizations.

The Fund’s grantmaking program is undergoing a strategic review to assess and enhance its effectiveness in fulfilling the Fund’s mission to shape positive change in health care for the people of New York. New policies and procedures are forthcoming, and as a result applications are not currently being accepted. We will resume grantmaking in the second half of 2015 and will post updated guidelines on or around June 1, 2015.

For more information, contact Hollis Holmes, grants manager, at or (212) 494-0761.
