Humana accepting applications from nonprofit groups for $100,000 grant
Humana Inc. and the Humana Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm, are currently accepting applications for the $100,000 Humana Communities Benefit charitable grant. For the third consecutive year, the Humana Communities Benefit program will award a one-time, $100,000 grant to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Central Texas focused on improving health experiences or building healthy communities.
Applications from eligible nonprofit organizations in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis or Williamson County are being accepted now through June 28.
Organizations will be considered in the operational areas of childhood health, intergenerational health and active lifestyles. Following a selection process by a panel of local judges, the 2013 grant winner will be announced at a celebratory event in October.
The Humana Communities Benefit program in Austin awarded the 2012 grant to Foundation Communities Inc., a nonprofit that provides supportive housing to low- and moderate-income families.
The organization is using the funds to build the Fitness Camino, an onsite, user-friendly fitness course for the 347 low-income families of the St. Elmo Project, which includes the Sierra Ridge and Sierra Vista apartment complexes in Austin.
