UnitedHealthcare Community Grants Program

We can help you build healthier communities.

At UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, we share a common goal with you: to build healthier communities and improve the lives of people in those communities.

We recognize that the work you do is important.  It is our mission to provide the support you need to design impactful community programs, seek and apply for grant funding, and continue to make a real difference.  Through our free trainings and grant guides our Community Grants Program can help make your programs more effective and funding efforts more productive. 


““This training built my confidence and my enthusiasm for grant writing.  The instructor is experienced and does a great job communicating in a well-organized manner. I am a new grant writer and while I am already doing some of the things she recommended, I got quite a bit of good information that I intend to put to use.”  (September 2017 training participant)

“The presenter is highly informed and as a result presents some of the best information for grant writing. I have attended several classes on this subject, but this has been by far the best!” (October 2017 training participant)

Our online trainings are led by a non-profit management expert whose experience as a grant writer, reviewer, and development director allows for unique insight into grant writing at the state, local, and national level.  We also leverage real-life proposal examples to demonstrate what successful program design, evaluation, and funding look like.  Trainings can be accessed by clicking the links below.
