The CHANGE Grants program provides funding support for organizations who are currently working to move the needle on the CHANGE Framework sub-sectors and indicators.

The first year of HCF’s CHANGE Grants (2021) aims to be one of learning, with a ground-up, collaborative process. We recognize that many organizations are already doing pivotal work in our community. HCF is eager to learn about current programs and projects that contribute to the state of a subsector where there may be opportunities to fill gaps in support, and which projects contribute to the state of multiple subsectors. To learn more about the CHANGE Framework visit here.

The Requests for Proposals (RFP), including the grant program’s focus, eligibility, and requirements can be found here.


The application process is short and aims to be non-labor intensive.   

Eligible applicants will be asked to attend a virtual meeting to share about the organization and its work within the CHANGE sector(s).

Applications will only be accepted online. The registration process may take up to 2 business days. Please register early.
