ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - The West End Health Foundation (WEHF) is changing their grant application process.
In order to help applicants better understand, the organization held a number of workshops on Monday at UP Health System – Bell in Ishpeming to explain.
While there are a handful of changes, the biggest one to note is that the application will be done entirely online now.
With lots of interest in their grant money each year, WEHF hopes that this process will make it easier for both grantees and the grant committee, and will make the distribution of grants more fair.
"We receive over $200,000 in grant requests, so that's a lot of money [and] we only have $30,000 to give. So, we wanted to make sure people knew what we were looking for, and we wanted to make sure that their application was considered,” says Pam Roose, vice president of the WEHF.
The WEHF will also be launching a new spring capital grant cycle, in addition to their fall programming grants.
Their grants are used to promote health and wellness in the community.
The slideshow with all changes made and more information can be found on the West End Health foundation website.
Anyone looking for help with the process or more information is encouraged to call their office at 906-204-7410.
The WEHF has given out more than $592,000 since forming in 2014.
