EPHT Funding Guidelines

EPHT Funding Priorities and Geographic Focus

EPHT is committed to centering access to health care by addressing barriers, navigating systems of care, and supporting person-centric medical services across the spectrum of care. EPHT will accept or solicit first stage applications (LOIs) for program/project funding or general operating support in alignment with the following priority areas. Click each area for more information:

Within these areas, EPHT prioritizes efforts that address barriers and result in improved health for people living in or near a geographic area of 25 zip codes in St. Louis City, St Louis County, and the East Metro (see below). Organizations seeking funding must demonstrate a strong connection to the geographic focus area, such as: being based in one of these zip codes; providing services in one or more of these zip codes; demonstrating targeted strategies and/or partnerships that reduce barriers to care for people living in these zip codes.

Funding Request Parameters

The majority of EPHT awards will be one year grants, with a limited number of multi-year grants (up to 3 years). EPHT will consider one-year or multiyear funding requests with an annual maximum of $25,000.

Special Projects

EPHT may consider funding for collaborative or special projects addressing critical healthcare needs, such as: addressing ongoing effects of the pandemic; expanding a segment of the healthcare workforce to improve access to services and/or increase representation amongst providers and care teams; or responding to an emerging health crisis.
