EHF Grants Announcement with The Episcopal Health Foundation

As the Episcopal Health Foundation gets closer to approving and announcing our first round of grant recipients later this Spring, we want to continue our effort to transform community health across all 57 counties within the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.

To do that, we want to encourage more non-profit organizations, clinics and other groups in all of our counties and communities to apply for an EHF grant.

We know there are many of these groups doing transformative work around health in smaller areas outside of Houston. However, those groups may not be aware of the Episcopal Health Foundation and the availability of grants that can invest in their good work.

Please call or email Brian Sasser, Director of Communications, any questions, concerns or comments at 832-807-2575 or bsasser@episcopalhealth.org
