Each year, the Illinois Community Health Foundation (ICHF) releases an RFP, offering approximately $60,000 in funding in Federally Qualified Health Center Quality Improvement Grants. These grants aim to enhance technological and other resources that improve quality of care and disease outcomes at eligible organizations’ clinics.

Since its inception in 2013, ICHF has awarded nearly $100,000 in grant funding to support the improved health of underserved individuals and the services provided by Illinois’ community health centers. Health centers are a sound investment. Foundation grants awarded to health centers are well-spent. A recent 13-state study shows that Illinois health centers save 27% in total spending per Medicaid patient compared to non-health center providers. Illinois health centers provide care to 24% of the Medicaid population while utilizing only 2% of Medicaid dollars. Grant funds support quality improvement, patient safety, diabetes prevention, dental expansion, population health management and communication.
