Grants to Ohio and Indiana nonprofit organizations for health programs in Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Randolph, Union, and Wayne counties in Indiana and Darke and Preble counties in Ohio. Funding is intended for programs that make healthcare more accessible, advance knowledge through research or health education, improve the community's health, and relieve a government burden. This year, the Foundation will focus grant funds toward the following priorities in the community:

Mental Health and Substance Abuse: The Foundation's goal is to promote mental, emotional, and behavioral well-being within the communities we serve by improving mental health and reducing substance abuse. Grant requests will be evaluated on their ability to improve the following indicators:
- Adults who smoke
- Controlled substances dispensed
- Death rate due to drug poisoning
- Depression: Medicare population
- Frequent mental distress
- Heroin treatment rate
- Mothers who smoke during pregnancy

Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Weight: The Foundation's goal is to improve the health of the community by encouraging healthy choices and reducing the disparities related to activity and nutrition. Grant requests will be evaluated on their ability to improve the following indicators:
- Access to exercise opportunities
- Adults 20+ who are obese
- Adults 20+ who are sedentary
