The Owensboro Health Community Health Investments Grant Program provides financial assistance to nonprofit organizations, governmental or public entities who are working to address identified community health priorities based on their local community health needs assessments and/or community health improvement plans.

Grants are awarded to non-profit, public, or government organizations for specific programs and activities, which address identified priority health issues and those social determinants of health that impact the health and health outcomes of their community. All activities must serve individuals within the defined Owensboro Health service area.

Owensboro Health seeks and supports partnerships to impact the significant health issues facing their communities.
